WHO WE ARE
Here at Street Art Initiative, we aim to empower artists who are at risk of social exclusion through celebrating and selling their artwork. We are all about creating opportunity to those who may not otherwise have the chance.
WHAT WE DO
Street Art Initiative is in the business of changing and shaping lives. We offer the chance for our artists to secure their own income through the sale of original artworks via our platform. We do this by providing our artists with the physical tools they need to produce their art. We then make their artwork available for purchase via our website.
Our members are then given the tools and support they need to produce their own artwork in a safe and encouraging environment. This includes everything from being given supplies and eventually framing, insuring and photographing the piece.
Artwork is then made available for purchase on our website. Artists are paid 50% of the profit from their piece. The rest of the money is put back into furthering our mission and helping more artists.
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see"
