Now accepting applications from artisan vendors for the West Valley Arts Council's IMPRINT Festival! All artisans and makers who create beautiful and functional works are welcome to apply. Product submissions are open and not limited to small visual works, sculpture, prints, décor, greeting cards, jewelry and accessories, kitchenware, specialty candles and soap. We encourage artisans from diverse backgrounds who create unique products. 

The IMPRINT Festival, taking place Saturday, March 11, 2023 from 11am - 5pm, will highlight the richness, beauty, and uniqueness of the diverse cultures existing in the valley. The festival will include an open gallery, live performances in music and dance, food trucks, children's activities, and live painting!

IMPRINT: Elevating Cultural Diversity in the Arts is a series of annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures, and celebrations recognizing artists of color in and around the valley. We believe artists of color have made significant and positive contributions to our collective culture and communities through the arts. West Valley Arts Council seeks to highlight those impressions through ongoing activities and opportunities to engage with diverse perspectives, places, and heritage.

Through the IMPRINT program, WVAC also seeks to provide equitable access to resources and opportunities for BIPOC artists and organizations in support of our DEI initiatives. We believe that cultural equity means full inclusion, participation, and resource-sharing in all of our communities and institutions.
