The Hand2Hand Artisan Society was founded with a deep desire to connect and support local artists. We also recognize the challenges new and emerging artists and artisans face to get their foot in the door. With those challenges in mind we are extremely excited to offer the Hand2Hand Hand Up Bursary - and offer a hand up (see what we did there) to artists facing circumstances that make getting to market difficult.
During vendor selection we'll also be selecting 1-2 vendors to receive a hand up with their table fees. The selection process will determine need based on a number of criteria including age of your business, financial need, barriers you may face, and extraordinary circumstances. The application for the bursary is an optional add-on component of the vendor application.
The bursary will include a $50 credit towards table fees, prominent table placement, a special feature on the website, additional social media coverage and mentorship opportunities from our partner team.
Our guiding principal is makers supporting makers, and we are so thrilled to have been able to support young entrepreneurs explore their craft and enjoy their first market experience!
Young makers are encouraged to apply and join our community - our team strives to ensure an inclusive and supporting environment for all!
