Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) offers many opportunities to promote your career but none quite as important to the touring musician as bringing Presenters to our annual conferences. Now you can help make this happen with Presenter Sponsorship. Here's how...
FAR-West Presenter Outreach supports and promotes our music in many direct ways:
- Presenters are identified that are likely to support our various styles of music and hire our members. They receive conference information and invitations.
- Presenter Definitions: Festivals, Venues, Concert Series, House Concerts and Arts Organizations.
- Qualifying Presenters that need tangible assistance are selected for sponsorship, especially if they would be unable to otherwise attend the conference. All of this is at the discretion of FAR-West.
- Additionally, various programs are in operation or development to assist in the creation of new Presenters in communities throughout the region.
- Donations at any level are welcomed from our members, concert audiences and anyone else who believes in the performers of FAR-West and the music they create and present. Different levels of sponsorship will be acknowledged by FAR-West in various ways. (Deadlines apply.) Please contact us for details.
So, now it's up to you. Make a difference, stand out from the crowd and make this year's FAR-West conference more successful for all attendees. FAR-West is a 501(c)(3) corporation and your donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Donations can be made via the PayPal link above.
