ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE - Jenny McLaren art for sale.livepages::jquery();?>
ARTIST SUPPORT PLEDGE is a culture & economy in support of artists and makers established by artist Matthew Burrows on 16th March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now a global movement of communities committed to an equitable and sustainable economy for artist and makers of all countries, media and ethnicities.
The project uses social media platform Instagram, a popular platform for artists to post images and share their work. Artists and makers can post their images using #artistsupportpledge giving details of their works and price (no more than £200 or equivelent). If people are interested in buying, they message (DM) the artist. Anyone can buy the work and artists don’t need permission to join.
Every time an artist reaches £1,000 of sales, they pledge to buy £200 of work from other artist(s).
ASP works by example, showing how a generous culture behaves and exploring the values that maintain its ethos. At the core of this is a commitment to equality of opportunity FOR ALL and an accessible platform to participate.
