Hello independent artists! It’s time to get your inventory ready for all the craft markets coming up this Spring / Summer in Southern Illinois!
Here’s a rundown of 5 local craft markets you'll want to start planning for. Make sure to mark your calendar book for the application deadline and budget in a vendor fee to your monthly spending plan in case the fair has a fee.
Project Human X wants to see artists thrive and make a living off of creativity! Craft markets are a great way to put your name out there and meet people face to face.
If you're in the Carbondale/Makanda area, utilize the Buy Nothing Group on Facebook to get help with materials, tents, tables, folding chairs, table cloths and more. It's a great group to give gifts and receive gifts within the community. If you have more questions on how to join a craft market, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join our Private Facebook Group Project Human X Community.
Project Human X is hoping to have an art festival this summer! If you'd like to get involved, join our email list or send us an email at email@example.com
