Last Friday while waiting for my train I purchased myself a coffee at the train station and my eye was drawn to a flyer on the counter: Cultuurveiling.nl it said (Dutch word for culture auction).
So what is this culture auction? Artists get the possibility to expose their work and auction it online on their own profile. The items up for auction vary from, CD’s images, pictures and books. But also services are offered – a band who wants to perform at your party, or a painter who would like to paint your new baby room.
I personally think this is a great initiative; artists get the chance to expose their work and create a name for themselves. Plus it is easily accessible and maybe something to look into for a X-mas gift. Who wouldn’t rather receive a painting inspired by Van Gogh than a screwdriver or perfume?!
Biddings start at 1 euro!
