Vendor Terms and Conditions Culture Connection AZ welcomes people of all races, cultures, religions, genders and gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnicities, ages, abilities, and nationalities. We expect you to treat every individual with dignity, respect, and compassion. Because of our cultural focus, we ask that artists and creators openly and proactively share about their culture, background, and lived experiences in order to educate, inform, and inspire the Flagstaff community. NO hate speech, name-calling, or offensive language. Vendors that use this language will be told to leave. Treat all vendors, artists, volunteers, and visitors with respect. Do not down-talk or talk negatively about another vendor or their product. Artists/Vendors cannot discriminate based on race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, military service, political affiliations, etc. Recruiting or promotion of any specific religious or political ideologies, or political candidates is strictly prohibited. Set Up Each artist/vendor should bring their own table and chair(s) and is responsible for their own set up and take down. When we have volunteers, they can help, but we may not always have volunteers. The Pop Up takes place from 12-4pm, and vendors can arrive and begin setting up no earlier than 11am (if you need more time please make arrangements with us prior to the day of the event). Displays and tables must be set up in a way that there is at least 3 feet of space across all hallways and passageways to comply with ADA requirements for access. We encourage vendors to be as inclusive and accessible as possible. If you need ideas for how to be more accessible and inclusive, please talk to us! Any electrical cords or other items in passageways must be taped down or covered with a rug. Please attend to your belongings at all times.

To create a more compassionate and interconnected community in which all members are respected and valued, through programs which facilitate reflection, critical analysis, and appreciation of different cultures and the Humanities, and are accessible to all.
And to accomplish this vision through the following actions and initiatives:
Facilitate conversations through connecting people, both locally and globally, in order to break down stereotypes and miss held beliefs about other cultures and peoples.
Lift up and amplify voices that historically have been silenced so that we might hear their important messages, in order to foster a community based on equality, respect, and compassion for all peoples.
Address the isolation that many international community members experience while living in Northern Arizona.
Provide opportunities, resources, and space for independent scholars, educators, creators, and researchers, particularly in the Humanities, to continue the important work they do outside of traditional systems, such as institutions of higher education, as opportunities at these institutions diminish.
Advocate for and collaborate with other nonprofits and humanities organizations, and facilitate connections amongst different organizations, businesses, and individual community members.
Our programs have impacted the community in significant ways, including working with over 50 local artists and facilitating over 100 international connections, both virtual and in person. Over 400 people in our community attended our events and programs in 2021. We have provided opportunities to a diverse group, including indigenous / Native American, LGBTQ+, Hispanic, Black and African American, those with disabilities, veterans, and Asian American community members.
