Free online platform for Derbyshire Artists and Makers to promote and sell work.

Derbyshire County Council, working with District and Borough partners, is supporting the roll out of new one-stop local shopping website across towns and villages in Derbyshire by offering 1 year free subscription to local businesses, including artists and makers. We understand how difficult it has been for so many artists and makers who have been unable to sell their work at markets and fairs, so are we’re really keen to encourage as many as possible to join and benefit from the no commission on sales platform.

Behind the Scenes with BIF

While we plan for 2021, we are delighted to share the first in a series of conversations with creative team members who are helping to bring our productions to life.
