Augusta Artists Matchmaking
Greater Augusta Art Council
The Greater Augusta Art Council is planning to develop an artist matchmaking platform. This platform will help artists, potential public art property controllers, and people wanting to commission artists to create all find each other in an easy-to-use forum that supports the sharing of work samples and contact information in a safe environment.
SCC interns will create an online matchmaking forum in which artists can list themselves with samples of their work and rates to hire them, where property owners with walls for murals or land for sculptures can list their location, and where people seeking an artist for a gig or commission or other paid opportunity for which artists could ply their skills to make a living could also list those opportunities.
This project will expand the network of opportunities for people in Augusta to engage with the arts and local artists, and for local artists to have a dignified way of getting themselves into public notice for their skills. Interns will help all of these groups find each other equitably and openly and reduce the technological barriers for these parties to find one another.
With the help of SCC interns, the Greater Augusta Art Council will be able to expand the network for opportunities for artists in Augusta by connecting them to potential clients openly and equitably. View a larger image of the presentation here.
