AAF-BR is searching for talented volunteers to help 10/31 Consortium, a Baton Rouge area nonprofit organization, re-brand their annual Fifolet Festival and re-position how the community views them. 10/31 Consortium is committed to serving their community through the fun and creativity of Halloween traditions and folklore. The Fifolet (fee-foh-lay) is part of Cajun folklore – a magical and mischievous blue flame that appears deep in the Louisiana swamp. To help us achieve this goal, we need logo designers, social media specialists, PR pros, brand managers, copywriters and media buyers.
