Artist Advocacy Group Seeks Input -- NAIA

9861275670?profile=RESIZE_400xWhat you need to know about the NAIA:
The mission of the National Association of Independent Artists is to strengthen, improve and promote the artistic, professional and economic success of artists who exhibit in art shows. We are committed to integrity, creativity, and the pursuit of excellence and we advocate for the highest ideals and practices within all aspects of the art show environment. It was started in 2007 after a crowd swarmed art fair booths in Charlotte, NC, for the purpose of banding together to strengthen events and work with show directors for the improvement of the art festival business.


Dear Artists,

The National Association of Independent Artists (NAIA) has done several artist surveys over the years. We seek your input on the 2021 NAIA Artist Survey. We use this information to help advocate directly to shows about what is affecting artists today. We as artists can all benefit from knowing about the experiences of other artists, and show directors have told us often that data like this from our members, and other artists, helps them inform their stakeholders and craft artist-friendly policies, and create more success for their artists.

You can fill out the survey on our website here:

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes. Thank you in advance for taking the time to share your experiences with us. While we are not collecting any personal information, and would never publish identifying information, we will be publishing summaries on our website and sharing useful data with the art show community. The survey will close on Dec. 1, please share your experiences with us before then.

We hope you will participate in this effort to gather and share information about who we are as a group. To find out how to be more involved in the NAIA and our advocies, reach out on our facebook forum or send an email to us:
