Last Fridays Makers Markets
COMMUNITY SHOWCASE APPLICATION

Community Showcase Requirements -

We allocate space to showcase a limited number of community groups and local nonprofits at Last Fridays Makers Markets, but Last Fridays are first and foremost about offering accessible arts programming to the community.

Community groups/nonprofits are required to offer an interactive component, i.e. games, crafts, experiences, beyond proliferating materials, calls to action, or garnering support/awareness.

No political campaigns.
