Introducing a new program of Arts2People called the Handcrafted Artisan Revitalization Program (HARP). The programs helps to physically and economically revitalize vacant commercial real estate by connecting it with local cultural assets already working in the community. The HARP revitalizes not only the program locations but also helps artist participating in the program by connecting them to multiple sales venues and opportunities. A basic membership to the HARP is only $25 but provides artists with a large list of benefits.
The mission of the HARP is: Create an economic development initiative activating underutilized commercial development incorporating regional creative professionals. While there is no jury for a basic membership, most of the opportunities presented by the HARP have a free jury open only to the HARP membership.
