Supporting Individual Artists Coffee Chat

Creating a Marketplace for Emerging Artists

April 23, 2019 at 1:00PM EDT

Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists. Our topic for March 2019 will be about creating a marketplace for emerging artists.


How can you support emerging artists by providing a platform to market and sell work? 


Join Erik Culver and Alok Marwaha, Co-Founders of ArtStartArt, for a discussion on how to better support emerging artists. Erik and Alok will talk about what they've learned emerging artists need in terms of support and how that sparked their creation of ArtStartArt, an online marketplace for emerging artists and buyers. They will give an overview of their platform, discuss best practices with building an online marketplace for artists, and let you know what they've learned from both artists and buyers during their process. Be sure to bring your questions!



This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
