VIRTUAL ART MARKET

 

Q: How will the Virtual Art Market be ran this year? 

The 50th Annual Stanford Powwow Virtual Art Market will be held in collaboration with From the People, a Native and woman-owned, online Indigenous marketplace that caters specifically to Native artists and vendors!

 

This Virtual Art Market will be open for the entire month of May and will provide vendors the unique opportunity to remain a part of the Stanford Powwow, while also reaching a broader audience through From the People's interactive platform.

If accepted, vendors will receive information about the Stanford Powwow platform on From the People and will be able to create an account, list items for sale, and sell directly through the site or link to a personal established website.
