2: SHARE THE STORY - HELP US PROMOTE THE FESTIVAL!

We’re aiming for a big launch - and we want your help sharing the vision and inviting your friends. Click here to learn more about an easy way to spread the word AND earn money for yourself at the same time!

3: VOLUNTEER - HELP MAKE THE FESTIVAL HAPPEN! 

You can apply to join one of our lovely teams of people helping to make the festival happen - whether in the months leading up to the festival or at the event itself. All volunteers receive free festival passes, along with other benefits. Click here for details on volunteering.

4: BE A PROGRAM CONTRIBUTOR 

The New Story Festival is shaped by you! We are looking for organizations and individuals to submit proposals for programming during the festival - workshops, presentations, performances, professional services, art installations, sacred rituals, etc.

(NOTE: The official proposal process closed September 30, but please consider submitting again next year!)

5. BE A SPONSOR

Whether you can contribute financial or in-kind resources, we’re delighted to work with sponsors who support our vision of a better story for better lives and a better world. In return we offer like-minded organizations the opportunity to get your name in front of a large targeted audience with an intrinsic interest in your work. We will work with you to craft a sponsorship package that meets your specific promotional needs.  Click here for information on how to become a sponsor.

6. BE A VENDOR OR EXHIBITOR

Whether you are a non-profit, an independent maker/artist/trader, or a unique local food vendor, we offer an opportunity to get your work and your wares in front of thousands of festival-goers. Click here for information on vending and exhibiting at the festival.

7. Donate Air Miles, Hotel Rewards, Gift Cards, and Equipment

Donating air miles, hotel reward points, and unused gift cards is a great way to help the New Story Festival get off the ground and keep our expenses (and ticket-prices!) low. We will use them to help bring amazing festival speakers, performers, and organizers to Austin to make the total experience better for all of us! Click here for more information on in-kind donations to the festival.

8. Participate in the Offers & Needs Market

Your organization can join the Compassionate Austin Co-op to receive an invitation and free festival pass to participate in the first-ever Central Texas Offers & Needs Market during the festival.
