Artists, Authors, and Musicians must be accepted into the Collective.
We prefer that our members:
- Live within 50 or so miles of Brattleboro.
- Personally create the items submitted for sale in the store.
- Commit to the Collective for a minimum of one year.
- Pay the annual fee (only 10-40 bucks) or the one time application fee ($10)
- Contribute a percentage of each sale to the Collective (only 10-25%)
- Donate the required time (only 0-30 hours per year)
- Read, understand and adhere to the Guidelines.
Applicants need to submit examples of their work (images, or sound clips, or writing samples) with the application.
Author and Musician members pay an application fee of $10 (no annual fee thereafter), and pay a 10% commission rate to the Collective on all items sold, and have no work commitment (but volunteering your time to the Collective is greatly appreciated!)
Artist fees are $40 per year with a 25% commission rate on all items sold and a 30-hour per year work commitment. However, to encourage broader membership and low pricing, we offer the following discounts:
- Artist members selling only items priced under $250 will pay $30 per year with a 20% commission rate and a 24-hour per year work obligation
- Artist members selling only items priced under $25 will pay $20 per year with a 15% commission rate and a 18-hour per year work obligation.
- Artist members selling only items priced under $10 will pay $10 per year with a 10% commission rate and a 12-hour per year work obligation.
We prefer that you apply online (see below). But, you may download an application or request one via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone at 802-490-2277, or pick one up at the store (Artrageus1, 57 Elliot Street, Brattleboro, VT 05301) any Friday, Saturday, or Sunday between 11-5.
Once your application is submitted, you will be notified within two weeks of our decision.
