Client Spotlight

The Santa Fe International Folk Art Market is a results-oriented entrepreneurial 501(c)3 organization that provides a venue for master traditional artists to display, demonstrate and sell their work. By providing opportunities for folk artists to succeed in the global marketplace, the Market creates economic empowerment and improves the quality of life in communities where folk artists live.

The mission of the Market is to foster economic and cultural sustainability for folk artists and folk art worldwide, and to create intercultural exchange opportunities that unite the peoples of the world.

The Compass Group recently completed a planning study for the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, and is currently providing campaign counsel to organize and direct a $6 million campaign in support of the Market’s sustainability and endowment.

Every July, the Market fulfills its mission by providing opportunities for some of the world’s finest folk artists to participate in an annual festive, two-and-a-half day event in Santa Fe, NM. Visitors attending the Market enjoy ethnic foods, artists’ demonstrations, international performances, and educational activities.

This year’s Market is being held July 8-10, 2011. More than 180 select folk artists from 49 countries will travel to Santa Fe where thousands of visitors will gather to admire and buy distinct folk art forms that express the world’s diverse cultures. Sales at the Market directly benefit artists and their families, and help sustain communities worldwide with participants taking home 90% of all sales.
