Artists and crafters are cordially invited to a presentation at the Department of Arts and Culture by Robin van Rensburg in collaboration with the KZN Department of Arts and Culture (Eastern Region) which will just be facilitating the discussion on February 12, 2019, at 14h00.

This is an exciting launch of combined internet marketing and mixed social media marketing to promote South African Art and Crafts worldwide in a structured commercial platform. The interest is art and crafts that will show our diverse culture which will present specialised functional arts and crafts, from chandeliers to porcelain and mixed mediums like wood or recycled products. It will exclude paintings for now.

Money makes the world go around especially if you have a platform to promote what you do in a practical way. Shipping and packaging have been put in place for you to utilise after a sale. All the practical business issues have been investigated and structured to make it easy for you to just provide your beautiful products.

Van Rensburg is a business consultant who has vast experience in business development and is a turnaround specialist for large to medium enterprises. He is also a Franchise consultant and has always had a special interest in Art. Let years of experience in consulting be of some use and create a brilliant business model for you and allow you to focus on art and not the selling of your product.

Those attending are asked to bring a document with pictures of their art and full contact details.
