Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Most of us know that artist fees do not entirely support the costs of putting together an art festival, and the bigger the event the more $$ an event needs. Show organizers search for sponsors to help carry the expense and, not surprisingly, there are business firms that are paid to find sponsors for events, Sponsorship Brokers. The good ones have extensive connections, strong skills, and a good work ethic.
But there is a rise in unscrupulous brokers who brokers make big promises, but they don’t secure any sponsorship. They don’t even try. Their business is to make money from the retainers.
They target small players, offer a guarantee, retainer upfront, ridiculous claims, etc. Then disappear.
