a co-operative of artists?

A co-operative structure was suggested to artistsofgalway and we thought we would run it by the viewers of the website and the artists in particular.  Would you personally support the idea? If so, let us have your comments via the website or by emailing your views to artistsofgalway@gmail.com

ICOS (www.icos.ie) is a national organization that supports the start-up or co-operatives. Such a structure would be advantageous to a group of new artists as it would;

  • formalise a structure of support and co-operation
  • reduce costs for everybody concerned
  • afford opportunities for group purchase e.g. discount on artists’ materials
  • create a brand
  • improve marketing and sales scope

Let artistsofgalway know what you think, please!
