New art agency ARTbound Community aims to help artists sell more work
ARTbound Community is an organisation that aims to nurture and enhance the creative career paths of artists, and other creative practitioners, by offering advice, support, and creating participatory opportunities and events.
This week we speak with one of ARTbound's founding members Meg Oxford about what the organisation offers to aspiring creatives and how it can help build your career.
Can you tell us a little about the services offered by ARTbound?
Currently, ARTbound offer two specifically tailored subscription plans, Art Agency and Showcase Subscription. Both of these plans are unique in how they deliver services based on the artist’s current level of practical development.
Regular representation is received by each artist, and we help to developof their online presence. We also provide wonderful benefits to our members every step of the way!
What services do you offer for those who aren't quite ready to join an agency?
ARTbound offer three bespoke service packages aimed at supplying a career enhancing experience but without the subscription. These packages work in a 3 tier programme, conducted individually or in bulk, and purely dependent on what career goals artists are working towards.
Firstly we offer a “Design Package”, aimed at developing artist’s individual brand, creation of a logo and innovative business card designs.
Secondly, to ensure artist’s new brand gets the maximum exposure, we create a “Marketing and Promotional” plan which offers 3 months to plan, build and develop their arts marketing strategy. This offer is not exclusive to ARTbounds Design Package.
Lastly, a “Professional Package” which targets artist who work on canvas or any material which can be photographed, for the purpose of creating digital copies, prints and gift cards. This package also offers free gift card samples on behalf of a print agency partnership.
If all of the above seems tremendously exciting, ARTbound also creates events opportunities for artists and photographers, ranging from collaborative exhibitions, art fairs, commissions and workshops.

- Tra-Digital exhibition – Halifax, West Yorkshire – 11th June to 2nd July 2015
