The #artistsupportpledge initiative
As a response to the COVID-19 outbreak, an artist, Matthew Burrows @matthewburrowsstudio, has started an initiative on Instagram. The idea is that artists offer work for sale on Instagram, up to a value of £200. Once an artist has achieved total sales of £1000 they are then obliged to buy artwork from other artists to the value of £200. You advertise work that is available by posting images of it using the #artistsupportpledge hashtag. See the post on Matthew Burrows feed for more details. The artist has to pay postage costs and (obviously) the purchasing of work once you reach £1000 is on trust.
