Short Story

The conception & development of ArtBrick have been an incredibly lean operation thus far, and to demonstrate the power of community-driven initiatives, we are reaching out to our own community to help us lay our foundation for success.

Campaign Story

Our Vision

The vision of ArtBrick is centered around a humanistic conception of the art market, which is to say that we care as much or more about the community outcomes that our hosted projects will achieve than we care about turning a profit.  This is why we are turning to our community to help us crowd-fund our start-up costs.  If we were to pay start-up expenses using investors or other external stakeholders with special interests and a primary focus on profit-margins, then we would compromise the integrity of the work we hope to accomplish.  By tapping into our global network, we can achieve a whole lot by only asking members of the community for a little.

Projected Start-Up Expenses

  • $5,000 Fees, licenses, legal & financial expenses for establishment of business documentation, contracts & agreements, plus any other unforeseen logistical expenses.
  • $10,000 Web Development of site-specific features needed to build Artist Galleries that align with Community-Wellness Projects (Bricks)
  • $15,000 to establish representation at major art fairs & biennales in 2024
  • $20,000 Marketing Expenses, including print, digital and targeted urban advertising
  • $50,000 Total Start-Up Expenses
