How does a virtual market work?
The market will run for 24 hours. During that time we will be highlighting vendors and giving you access to special curated content. During this time certain vendors will be open to the purchase of art through alternative commerce.
What’s the different about a virtual market as opposed to buying directly from artists?
We will be featuring interviews, tutorials and other live content from featured vendors throughout the day that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your home! But you will be buying directly from artists, just as you would in a physical market space.
How does this help artists and creatives?
It doesn’t without your support. That money that you might have spent on a night out or your morning Starbucks run can go to local creatives. And we’re super happy to introduce you to a bunch of folks who have gorgeous prints and crafts for your homes. We hope provide an alternative way of thinking about accessing the incredible work of (QT)BIPOC community members during this crises.
