FANTASE Dome Fest attracted more than 2,000 attendees and focused on art, light, music, and downtown vibrancy and also featured large-scale geodesic domes by the local business Lumenscapes. 83% of the budget went to artists, musicians, creative technicians, and designers.
NM Arts gave CrSF a $20,000 grant to issue to artists from all over northern New Mexico. Emerging artists from the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, University of New Mexico, and the Institute of American Indian Arts had the opportunity to attend classes and workshops to experiment with art and light installations, dome technology, and had their work on public display. Many of the people showcased that night got job opportunities from showcasing their talent – the very definition of community and economic development.
