What is Aarhus Makers?
First platform cooperative in denmark
Aarhus Makers is a collective webshop and offline community for Artists, Craftsmen, Designers and Creatives based in Aarhus Kommune - standing stronger together, to promote and increase sales of original art, artisan products and creative services.Aarhus Makers is inspired by the cooperative movement.
The goal is to create a sustainable organisation where local Makers can increase their individual visibility and sales, through joint effort, skill-sharing by collaborating and working together.
As an independent maker, showcasing yourself on a joint platform, makes it easier for customers to discover you - in short, it is a way to be seen and to sell your unique products. In addition, you become a part of a community of makers that support each other by sharing resources, skills and experience.
Aarhus is a city filled with incredible art, craftsmanship, design and creativity. However, as an independent maker it can be hard to profile yourself due to a lack of time and money. The Makers of Aarhus are spread around the city - some working from home, others in creative hubs - such as Godsbanen, Institute for X or Sydhavnen.
The primary goal for Aarhus Makers is to boost sales for all our members - creating a stronger, richer community. However, the platform is more than an collective webshop - we create value and grow sales through many other activities, including organizing Markets in incredible venues around Aarhus city for our members to showcase their work to the community in a physical marketplace.
We also host relevant workshops in Accounting, Market Stall Decoration, Social Media Management, SEO, e-shop Photography and much more.
Our workshop series is planned according to the wishes and needs of the maker-community and are hosted or delivered by our strategic partners.
