The #artistsupportpledge is an online/Instagram movement designed to help support artists during the covid19 pandemic. Like me, artists have found themselves with no outlets to sell their work as exhibitions have been cancelled and galleries closed. I myself had five exhibitions scheduled for 2020 alone. So, like many folk out there during this global crisis, artists need a little help. Nobody’s asking for handouts but if you love and appreciate art you can certainly join in!
It’s a brilliant idea and a simple one too. Artists post pictures of their work for sale accompanied by the #artistsupportpledge hashtag. Work for sale by participating artists can be found on Instagram at @artistsupportpledge. All the art is on sale for no more than £200 although it can obviously be less. Everytime an artist sells £1,000 worth of work, they commit 20% to purchasing the work of another artist using the hashtag! There are no enforcements and it is a system based on trust and any artist can take part using the #artistsupportpledge hashtag. Simples!
