Arts Impact Survey

Artist Support Pledge
Created in the UK, this program asks artists post images of their work, on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than $200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches $1000 of sales, they pledge to spend $200 on another artist/s work.
To make a pledge, post your work with the #artistsupportpledge and follow the # to see everyone else's work. Keep updated on new opportunities and announcements @artistsupportpledge
Let generosity be infectious
