Alternativna Website, with the support of the United Nations Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), launched a digital platform for the promotion of artists in Kosovo – ‘Gathered in Art’ (www.gatheredinart.com) Artists will be able to use this platform to promote themselves and their works of art, as well as to sell them in the online shop. At the end of each month, a virtual exhibition of works of art previously published on the platform will be organized. Works of art should be sent to the following e-mail address – firstname.lastname@example.org. More details below.
In order for your work of art to be published on the ‘Gathered in Art’ platform, the following conditions must be met:

– the size of the work of art;
– the price of each work of art;
– the works of art must be numbered/marked to clearly show which information relates to which work of art.

IMPORTANT: Neither the donors nor the Alternativna Website claim copyright to the works of art published on the platform. Authors retain exclusive copyright to their art. Only the administrative part of the sale will be conducted through the platform, which means that our team, after one of the works of art is purchased through the platform, will establish communication between the seller and the buyer who will then make further arrangements regarding the details of the sale.
