For over three years, Umba has partnered with hundreds of amazingly talented artists who spent years refining their craft, sometimes spending hours making a single product, purely out of a love of what they do. Many artists Umba meets are often (rightfully) frustrated that their products aren’t getting the attention they deserve as they are facing fierce price competition. Markets have become over-saturated with artists. The Umba community is the voice for these artists, designers, producers, and illustrators, connecting them with a powerful marketing force who understands and appreciates the time-honored skills they practice. We appreciate the work Umba is doing, and proud to announce them as one of our 2016 sponsors for ARISE Festival.
