ARTISTS: If you are an LGBTQ person or an ally who creates something you want to sell or give away, we want you!! It can be most anything- it doesn’t have to be LGBTQ related (See RULES). So far we have people interested in selling prints, paintings, bowties, books, jewelry, knit products, and baked goods. Help CNY 4 Solidarity raise $ for our future projects and pocket some for yourself as well. A large rectangular table is $30, half a table or a small table (depending on availability) is $15. You keep all the proceeds of your sales. VENDOR APPLICATION FORM: http://cnyforsolidarity.wordpress.com/queer-mart-2013/vendor-application/
VOLUNTEERS: We need people to help us put up flyers in the coming weeks, share the event online, help us in the planning process, and help us to set up and tear down at the event. We are all very friendly, enthusiastic people and would love to meet you at one of our next meetings. VOLUNTEER APPLICATION FORM: http://cnyforsolidarity.wordpress.com/volunteer-application/
YOUTH SPONSORS: Sponsor an LGBTQ Youth Artist. We have a handful of tables available for local LGBTQ youth who attend the Q Center (ages 13-22). For a donation of $15, you can sponsor a table for one of them to sell their art. SPONSOR FORM: http://cnyforsolidarity.wordpress.com/youth-sponsor-form/
