NZ Art Cloud is a project by Ripple Design & PR, the same team that bring you Creative Ripple. As creative people ourselves, we're passionate about the work we do to support Artists and other NZ Creators.
The idea for NZ Art Cloud came about when it became apparent that NZ Artists who were approaching Ripple Design & PR for help with websites, online stores and other digital marketing often couldn't afford the services, and this just didn't seem fair. This was especially the case for emerging artists who found that the costs associated with being online were so high that they were having trouble getting their work out there for the world to see. We decided to do something about this, and have adopted the concept of an online collective.
The NZ Art Cloud Collective currently has three main aims:
To provide a comprehensive directory of practicing NZ Artists that is free for any artist to join.
To provide affordable memberships that will ensure NZ Artists have access to high-quality website and e-commerce services and digital marketing advice and professional development opportunities.
To cultivate a supportive community for artists who work across NZ, including those working in isolated areas.
We're committed to supporting NZ's artists by sharing our design and digital expertise and providing a range of services to our members and the creative community.
The NZ Art Cloud project is funded entirely by Ripple Design & PR and our low membership fees. The people who have been involved with the planning and setup of NZ Art Cloud have largely worked as volunteers to get the project off the ground. Choosing to join us as a member will give you a chance to discover how we can support you, and your small membership payment will help to support the work that we are doing for all NZ artists.
