 #Tech4Good Arts and Culture Award – The Finalists

Artist Support Pledge 

 

The Artist Support Pledge, was created and executed by the artist Matthew Burrows. It is designed to build a generous culture of artists and buyers and create a sustainable economy for artists and makers.
Artists post pictures of their art for sale on their Instagram account, costing £200 or less, with the hashtag #artistsupportpledge. Anyone interested can purchase the artwork through direct message. For every £1,000 of sales an artist makes, they pledge to reinvest £200 in the scheme, supporting a continuing flow of sales.
