Have you heard about this innovative instagram initiative?
It’s really quite brilliant!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many artists have found themselves without work; teaching, technical support, gallery work, exhibitions and sales have all but disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this fallout, Matthew Burrows instigated #artistsupportpledge
The concept is a simple one: Artists post images of their work on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 per piece (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 in sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist’s work.
So, if you’re an artist or maker, to pledge, post your work with #artistsupportpledge giving details of the work and price. And, if you’re interested in buying, message (DM) the artist. Anyone can buy the work and artists don’t need permission to join. Follow the # to see everyone else’s work and keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge
Please repost and tell your friends, colleagues and collectors.
LET GENEROSITY BE INFECTIOUS
