Support Local Art by Sponsoring the Digable Arts Festival in Hoboken

Want to support local artists and performers at the Digable Arts Festival? Like maybe me and “Kookspeak“?

Local businesses and art lovers can sponsor the Digable Arts Festival, which is taking place Saturday, Oct. 12th and Sunday, Oct. 13th in Hoboken, N.J. Over the past four years, the free event has consistently drawn a weekend crowd that supports both the arts and small businesses.

Digable attracts over 2,000 attendees over a two-day period from Hoboken and beyond with a combination of over 100 artists’ work throughout the Monroe Center for the Arts, located at 720 Monroe St., and three stages that will host varied musical and theatrical performances. Guests include families, young professionals in their 20’s to 40’s, art buyers and other art lovers.

This year the festival is expanding its reach greatly by making it free for artists who wish to participate. I am one of these artists and would greatly appreciate your support. I will be presenting my one-woman show “Kookspeak,” a collection of monologues from the mouths of people who live inside their heads. The show has been a hit at the So Low Theater Festival and Jersey City, Land of the Free-Form Festival in Jersey City, opened for “The Last Celebrity” starring Grammy- and Tony-nominated writer/performer Reg E. Gaines, and was partially performed at the Tri-State Arts and Music Festival, also at the Monroe Center, in May. This will, however, be the first time the entire show will be performed in Hoboken.

Below is a list of sponsorship opportunities:

Platinum Sponsor: $1500 (Sponsor precedes festival name, Large logo on everything)
Postcard Sponsor: $350 (Sponsor takes part of one side of 4,000 flyers)
Indoor Stage Sponsor: $500 (Sponsor name will be used to designate stage on all communication, guides and media)
Outdoor Stage Sponsor: $500 (Sponsor name will be used to designate stage on all communication, guides and media)
Acoustic Stage: $300 (Sponsor name will be used to designate stage on all communication, guides and media)
General Sponsorship: $150 (Logo on all posters and in media guide)
Shout-Out: $10 (Much like a yearbook booster, you can get a line in the media guide expressing support for me e.g., “Nadia’s Cakes wishes Summer the best and hopes Kookspeak has a great run at Digable!”)
