A LOJA DO ARTISTA is an online store that was created in a time of confinement and that essentially aims to be a concrete help for all cultural workers – artists, technicians, authors and other professionals in the arts and shows.
A LOJA DO ARTISTA results from the will of two companies (one linked to the cultural sector, the other to the technological sector), being a tool that aims to help not only those who put pieces for sale, but also all those who work in culture, through donations resulting from the proceeds of the sale of each piece. These donations can be for any entity or institution linked to the cultural sector, being the choice of who makes the piece available for sale.
As an example, the donation can be for: Audiovisual Union, Artist House, Authors Emergency Fund, Solidarity with Culture Fund, among many others.
From a garment with which a certain artist made a remarkable concert, to the manuscript of a poem, to a CD with a special dedication, a letter, a guitar, a photograph, a painting, audio equipment, etc.
Anything that is unique pieces with some symbolism and history can be offered for sale. They may belong to artists, authors or technicians, but anonymous people can also make pieces available for sale, as long as they have some relevance or symbolism in them.
In practice, those who want to buy or sell only have access to www.alojadoartista.pt
