NORTH has smashed their Dreamstarter funding goal of $75,000 just days before the cut off date!
NORTH launched their Dreamstarter Pre-Order campaign just 30 days ago with the tipping point set to $60,000 and the stretched goal set for $75,000.
As a startup with limited funds but big dreams, NORTH launched their pre-order campaign to ensure they remain financially responsible and their incredibly talented artists get the best deal.
The launch of the Warlu Collection will support NORTH’s growth and development as a social organisation. Success of this collection will mean three things:
- A new income stream for our artists & their families is created through licensing of each garment – the art centre & artists benefit directly from every garment sold.
- Community pride is strengthened as Warlpiri designs make their way around the world, are strutted on catwalks, captured in photographs and worn with pride.
- NORTH as an enterprise will be financially supported to develop future collaborations that support and broaden the exposure of remote Indigenous textile design.
