Bringing Worlds Together
“We were pleasantly surprised by the energy, camaraderie, love, hospitality and generosity of not only the donors but the staff, volunteers, and everyone associated with the IFAA. Coming from a country famous, if not notorious, for it’s hospitality, It is safe to say we know hospitality when we encounter it.” –Nasrullah, Afghanistan
“I was moved by the fact that so many sponsors, staff, and volunteers give their time and efforts to make things possible for the first time artists, and would like to extend my personal gratitude to each and every one who made this visit possible” –Lulama Sihlabeni, South Africa
Multi-Lingual Volunteers Needed
Volunteer registration for the 2018 International Folk Art Market is now closed. Check back in Spring of 2019 for more information.
The International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe hosts over 150 artists from over 60 countries. While many of the artists speak English, many do not. Multi-lingual volunteers are needed for our Interpreters Team to assist the artists throughout many steps of the market, starting with written translation of important documents ending with event wrap-up and debrief.
Our Interpreters Team serves two roles:
Translate Written Materials – The volunteers work remotely to help translate and prepare written documents used by the artists prior to and during the event. Documents range in complexity, from shipping and travel instructions to more complicated legal documents. All work can be done remotely via email. Volunteers must have Word and email and be available for a possible quick turnaround of documents. Written translation is currently in process and is ongoing through early June.
Verbal Interpreters – Volunteers who fluently speak English and another language are needed to support some of our artists in person in Santa Fe at the Market, as well as events before and after. These are the dates that interpreters are needed at the Santa Fe Market:
- July 11 – New Artists Education Conference
- July 12 – Artist Resource Fair
- July 13 (evening) – International Folk Art Market
- July 14-15 – International Folk Art Market
- July 16-17 – Artist payout
