Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
May 19 & 20, Indianapolis, Indiana
In conjunction with the Broad Ripple Art Fair
In the past year we have been a part of many conversations concerning what are perceived as serious issues in our industry. While we were planning this conference, we began by discussing the "normal" format with Keynotes and other speakers. As discussion continued, it became apparent that the one advantage that NAIA has over other conferences is that we can bring artists and directors together to work on the issues and come up with possible solutions. So, rather than the same old format where all sit for two days listening, do some talking -- and, ultimately, little is accomplished -- we decided to work on issues.
We have selected three primary topics that were narrowed down after talking with both artists and show directors. Though specific formats are being worked out with facilitators, the general agenda will be as follows:
This conference will be the first in which artists and directors will work together to identify and discuss issues in the industry then work toward workable solutions during the conference.
If these are issues of concern to you then join us.
