This project received pledges on Fri 25 Mar 2022
A platform for creatives to sell their work, services, and get to know the wider community

BlackPepper pop-up event -

We are hosting an open call pop-up in collaboration with Not My Beautiful House, where creatives can sell their work, showcase art and make connections within the community. The event will be open for 2 days, with live music by up-and-coming bands and DJs in the evenings.

BlackPepper is a creative agency, started by students for other students. We provide a platform for creatives to showcase their work online, and collaborate on large scale projects with clients. We want to create a world that young creatives can engage with, and thrive in, with our own student run publication planned for June.

What are we doing?!

As good as it is to have a website and platform for people to see creatives work, we believe that there needs to be a way that the public, as well as other students, can interact physically with the work, and those who made it. We wanted to provide a space that students can sell their work and advertise their services through BlackPepper to the wider community. This would also provide as a way that other students can find out about the brand and maybe go on to work with them going forward.

Our goal is to raise £1000 to host the event to cover the cost of the event space, materials cost and the equipment hire. The aim is to reach the point where the students will not have to fund their own materials, which may be hard for those in financial need. 

The funding will be broken down as follows:

  • Sound system hire £440 ((£170 x 2) + £100 set up and break down)
  • Material printing costs £100 
  • Product materials £40
  • Not My Beautiful House staff payment £400 ((£100 x 2 people) x 2 days)
  • Poster printing £20

We have some rewards that will go to the donators of this project, including merchandise packages, exclusive prints and zines, check them out!
