Ask yourself am I willing to ask ten people for sponsorship to get one yes?

Carolyn Edlund

In this conversation, Carolyn Edlund from Artsy Shark chats with Graeme Stevenson , host and founder of Colour in Your Life, about procuring sponsorship as part of backing your art career.

Sponsors of all kinds have backed artists for centuries. Many many of our Colour in Your Life artists have been backed by Sponsors.

They can be large corporations like Hobby Craft who Sponsored five artists; or Councils, Festivals or Tourism bodies such as North Burnett Shire Council in  Queensland Australia. They could be your framers, art supply shop or a company like Hydrocryl paints. Or, they could be unrelated to art business like Timms Real Estate. If you don’t ask. You will never know if they are interested.

You are appealing to a very small part of the population who actually loves, appreciates and collects art. There are people who understand and value how important art is to the world. They want to be part of it and then see your work as being important and aligned with what they do.

    Wow, I am super impressed with the thorough and upbeat material you provide for marketing! As with anything in life, one needs to have determination, resilience and lots of energy. It also helps to know the market and the statistics you provide offer such a positive conclusion. This CIYL 24 minute film is a win-win.
