Big Cartel Web Shop Showcase
In 2022 we partnered with local business, Big Cartel, to offer a web shop workshop and artist stipends to Salt Lake City and Utah based artists on building an online shop to sell arts and crafts! The intention of this partnership is to support the professional and economic development of Salt Lake City and Utah based artists. Big Cartel is an online platform for artists, craftspeople, and creatives to sell their work online. We offered two 1.5-hour workshops in which we trained artists on how to create their own online shop. Following each workshop, we provided a link to an application for workshop attendees to apply for a $250 artist stipend to go toward shop fees and related costs. We accepted 10 applicants for the $250 artist stipend. The accepted artists represent a wide array of media and backgrounds, including a pinata maker, a printmaker, a comic book artist, and several painters. Below is an online showcase of selected artists and their web shops.
