As and artist and maker here in Arizona, I am compelled to help support the community here locally.
It helps friends and colleagues. And, it helps me too.
"If you can't find the support and network you need, then go out there and CREATE IT!"
We have created a totally cool framework and home for tons and tons of services for our members.
But I thought it was probably important to summarize the options when it come to getting out of your studio and connecting with other, like-minded artists and entrepreneurs....
So here goes.
Stay Cool & Happy Making.
Three Great Ways to Get Connected
We have three ways that you can join our community and connect with others in the ARIZONA ARTISANS Collective... Check them all out:
Each option provides a slightly different vibe and certainly different content.
One of the key features that Members have asked for was a way to keep track of upcoming local events - Craft Shows & Festivals, Pop-Ups, Workshops, and more.
And not just when the events are going to occur - but just as importantly, the deadlines for application and even some constructive reviews and tips from Membership about each event. You know - how to get the good booth locations, what types of products do well, price points to target, etc etc.
Each event has its own vibe and core customer. So it's important to understand what it would take to be successful before you drop $400 for a space.
Please check out our Show & Events Calendar on our website:
I'll have more on the guidelines and calendar submission process in a future newsletter.
Keep in mind, since this is a group effort - the Member submissions will be a key part of making this calendar a success.
And, of course, you KNOW that I will be scheduling a whole bunch of content in the near future about how to nail-it at all of these great local Shows and Events.
We've got you covered. Stay tuned...
