A social network is a social structure made of individuals who are tied by one or more specific types of interdependency, such as friendship, common interest, relationship of beliefs or knowledge.
This website was started to bring together like-minded individuals involved in the nation's art fairs, giving them a place to gather and share information. It works pretty well. In fact, it works very well.
Except--it cannot be a sounding… Continue

There is an excellent long article in the Detroit Free Press (5/15/10) that is worth reading to help to understand the importance of sponsors at art fairs and events. This is not a fluff piece but a good analysis of why some events flounder and others are able to continue. It looks at the larger picture and the long term. WORTH READING.
Included in the interview are L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County (MI)'s Chief Executive (and probably the most powerful politician in the state), Jon… Continue
