Ten Thousand Villages is a nonprofit fair trade organization that provides a sustainable marketplace for handmade products by disadvantaged artisans from developing countries. The organization ensures each artist receives a fair price for their handcrafted items, and is able to provide a sustainable living for their families.
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
