The world has changed drastically over the last few months, but despite this, we continue to be hopeful! This is an opportunity for us to re-think how we've been connecting previously and to see if there are alternatives to maintaining and growing our respective art eco-systems.
In order to ensure the continued existence of our cultural scene, it’s crucial that we take active steps to ensure its survival. With cultural events postponed or cancelled for months to come, it's up to us to support creative talents and cultural communities during this extremely challenging time.
With international travel and movement drastically reduced, access to art and design across international borders will become increasingly difficult, not to mention more costly. We have already begun to see price surcharges climb for shipping and logistics, which will undoubtedly affect art 'consumimg' habits.
As a first step, we have made some changes on our site to ensure that you can discover artworks and artists in your city, from the comfort of your home. We have added the option to filter products by 'item location', so you will be able to shop and support artists, designers and galleries in your city! Let’s support our local arts communities, every little helps.
To contribute, use #ArtInMyCity to start sharing your experiences with art - whether it's a throwback to an exhibition you caught months ago, or if it's an artist whose works you came across in a local show, exhibition, or an artwork in your home.
Stay tuned for more details on #ArtInMyCity!
On another note, we're brainstorming about how we can connect beyond our borders and keep the arts community going.
