Sponsorship Program


The Rochester Art Ensemble (RAE) is committed to creating interdisciplinary community art events that are accessible and inclusive for people of all identities.

       With this mission at the core of all we do, we are proud to present the 2016 Day of the Dead Poetry Slam. The Poetry Slam is a unique artistic and cultural event made possible with support from sponsors like you! Your generous support at any level of sponsorship ensures the continued success and impact of this innovative programming.

        Your valued contribution will help us reach our goal of $20,000. Over half of the funds for the Poetry Slam have already been awarded by the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council (SEMAC). We are deeply honored to be a SEMAC grantee presenting programming that  supports arts and arts access, arts education, and arts and cultural heritage throughout our region.

       Please join us in raising the remaining funds by becoming a SPONSOR of the event. Sponsorship of the Poetry Slam offers fantastic opportunities to promote your organization, or business, and to demonstrate your dedication to the vibrant arts and cultural life of our region! Together we foster and strengthen creative communities!

We expect over 400 people to attend Day of the Dead Poets Slam throughout our three days of events and activities, with many more people viewing our posters, t-shirts, and other advertising materials leading up the event. People who attend Day of the Dead Poets Slam are those who love art, culture, and support local businesses and artists. They are involved and supportive of our local community, and will know that businesses who sponsor and advertise in our program deserve their support.
