The Mission of the International Folk Art Market is to create economic opportunities for and with folk artists worldwide who celebrate and preserve folk art traditions. The International Folk Art Market envisions a world that values the dignity and humanity of the handmade, honors timeless cultural traditions, and supports the work of folk artists serving as entrepreneurs and catalysts for positive social change.
It has been said that talent is universal, but opportunity is not.
Over the past 16 years, the International Folk Art Market and its flagship program, International Folk Art Market Santa Fe, have been providing opportunity to folk artists at the world’s largest market of its kind. Our organization has expanded programs to meet the specific challenges that folk artists are facing in the global marketplace. What was born out of Santa Fe as a small grass roots organization focused on one weekend a year, has now grown into a nonprofit empowering international folk artists year-round. Allied with the world’s master folk artists, your participation in IFAM results in communities around the world having clean drinking water, education for girls, improved health care, and thriving folk art communities.
