After two years of missing our usual trade shows and markets around the world due to the pandemic, we are so excited to be heading to Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA for the International Folk Art Market on July 6 - 10, 2022!
The market will see folk artists from all over the world come together to celebrate and preserve their folk art traditions, while also creating economic opportunities for them.
Much like Sidai Designs, 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.
In 2019, we were lucky to be selected as one of six Living Traditions Award finalists in their One World Awards program. This Living Traditions Award was awarded to us as for our work contributing towards the preservation of Maasai culture as a result of reviving or strengthening their traditional folk art. It was important that the winner had a strategy for passing on the tradition to future generations, and we are grateful to have been recognised for our work in this space.
We hope to see you at the next IFAM, coming up very soon on July 6th!
