Thank you for your interest in participating in our 2023 Winter Artist & Artisan Bazaar. As the humanitarian situation in Gaza and the region continues to deteriorate, we would like to offer the community a safe and supportive space to come together to exhale and process as we share resources to raise awareness, educate and empower. 

In the spirit of giving, Alif Institute is donating 100% of vendor booth rental fees to support the humanitarian medical work of the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF). We are also extending the opportunity to you, the vendors, to join us and be a part of this important humanitarian initiative. Vendors are encouraged (but not required) to further donate a percentage of their sales to PCRF using the special link we will provide.
