Please Note: DAM Events is all about building habits and positive rapport, which then opens the doors to getting hired for work and connecting with like-minded artists throughout the Bay. Bring your most positive + professional foot forward, and make sure to talk to people at and before the event to get the most out of your time + investment in the DAM network.
Is there a fee for Artists/Vendors to participate in a DAM Event?Currently, yes - There is a sliding scale entry fee for all DAM Event participants which helps cover the cost of media coverage, the venue + production team. Fees normally start at $25 and also cover up to 2 helpers for vendors + up to 10 additional performers for artists. There are many cases in which an artist is unable to pay the sliding scale fee but participates in a DAM Event, as we never want the fee to be the deciding factor as to whether to join the DAM vibes. All we ask for is open communication. <3 Fees can be paid via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Venmo (DAM_events) .

As an Artist, what are the perks of being a part of the DAM network?"By joining DAM, you are taking the first step towards having a professional portfolio (ie, the application process + media post-event) and/or broadening your already established fan/ supporter base. Equally as important, you are connecting with other like-minded artists who are ready to collaborate and grow. The DAM network receives inquiries often about unique opportunities - the more you stand out at DAM (this includes being professional before, during, and after the show), the more chance you have of getting booked/ referred out for work. Keep an eye on our Instagram for opportunities, as well as our DAM Resources Page (coming soon).
