Igniting an Empowerment Movement for Artists

In June of 2018, Embrace Creatives launched as a unique, professional network easily uniting artists and commercial buyers. Then something amazing happened.

EC Members began asking, “How can I help you?” 

And when they started asking to be a part of our exciting vision, we realized that Artists want more than sales. They crave business skills, peer support and affecting positive change in their community. So using the scale of an online network paired with emotionally connective, in-person events, EC is igniting an empowerment movement for Artists.

Embrace Creatives is developing a grassroots movement to strengthen our handmade, wholesale ecosystem. We are mindfully growing from city-to-city, state-to-state.

Founder, Andrea Bogart knows it’s not enough to open the pathway so she’s setting up Embrace Creatives as an educational platform guiding artists to succeed with the exciting possibilities they’ll make here.

Embrace Your Potential

EC Ambassadors and other members are available to mentor, share their experiences and answer questions like;

  • Which sales opportunities are trustworthy?
  • How do I ship across country?
  • What’s the best small business insurance for me?
  • How do market myself and my art business?
  • What do I need to know about copyright protection?

Embrace Creatives is where emerging and established, creative businesses meet, share ideas and strengthen our global arts community.

Why Embrace Creatives?

  • Be found easily by clients, creative collaborators and buyers.
  • Get monthly networking, exhibition and special event invitations.
  • Upload Portfolios, Look Books, Line Sheets, etc for commercial buyers.
  • Find new opportunities via calls & grants
  • Oh, and all passions are welcome – even nudes and erotic art

As expressed in our Community Guidelines, Embrace Creatives gives you a safe, dedicated space to present your work, find guidance and showcase your career with others around the globe!
