From the beginning March (hopefully!) 1010 the Designers Marketplace will be launching its online store and portfolio gallery, where you will be able to find and buy from all of your favourite DM traders plus many new names from far and wide!! We will be continuing our work in the promotion of contemporary and innovative works from both emerging and established artists and designers in all of our usual categories:
EVENT DATES FOR NEXT YEAR...
Next years dates are still in the process of being booked. So far we have three confirmed dates and venues, but as soon as we know where our other pit stops will be, we will let you all know. At the moment you can book for July and Dec 2010 dates only.
MARCH & APRIL 2010 - For the months of March and April Designers Marketplace will be changing its format slightly and entering into the world of 'pop-up shop'. We will be moving into (big) empty property space within Middlesbrough town centre, and our work on the promotion and support of regional creative businesses and the retailing of products will continue. Not only will the space be used for retail, but a series of weekly creative events are set to take place inside empty property making it an active, stimulating and exciting hub throughout the whole duration of our stay.
As a market vendor you will still be able to 'rent' your space for various periods of time in a mixed number of ways. The finishing touches are still being made to the proposal and the following details will be getting released early January:
- How to make your space reservation
- Location of empty unit
- What creative events and exciting happenings will be taking place inside the empty unit
- How you can get involved with the project on a number of different levels, learn new skills and also help promote your own creative business through the project.
