Open Offer Application Fee
What is it?
Since our inception, we have proudly hosted our open calls without an application fee, fostering an inclusive platform for artists and designers from diverse backgrounds to showcase their work. Our commitment to accessibility and community engagement has always been at the forefront of our mission. However, as our organization navigates the challenges of rising operational costs, we find ourselves at a crossroads that necessitates a reevaluation of our approach.
In our effort to maintain accessibility and inclusivity, we are introducing a flexible contribution model for the application fee. This means you have the autonomy to decide the amount you wish to contribute when submitting your application. Our aim is not to limit participation but to foster a supportive community where contributions are made based on individual capacity and willingness.
This approach allows us to adapt to the financial realities of running our organization while still upholding our values of openness and community engagement. Every contribution, no matter the size, will be directed towards supporting the organization's activities — such as alternative processes fashion week, educational talks, article publication, educational content, and future blog articles — ensuring we continue to offer valuable resources and platforms for artists.
