THE WEEKENDER 44 | 2022
Collage News & Inspiration
For some of you this will be the first newsletter in a while, for others the first one ever. To make a long story very short, we decided to move from Mailchimp to a new platform, and it took longer than anticipated. To make a short story long again, Mailchimp requires you to pay once you reach a certain number of subscribers, and as a non-profit artist community run on a shoestring budget, this was an expense we simply couldn't justify.
For a while, we only sent newsletters to people who actually read them somewhat regularly, but then we realized we could just go somewhere else. There is nothing wrong with Mailchimp, it's just not for us (anymore).
Everyone receiving this newsletter signed up to it at one point, possibly quite a while ago. It looks like we moved everyone successfully to Substack, but it might take us a while to get comfortable around here and work out the kinks, so please bear with us. You can of course unsubscribe if you want, but we would hate to see you go.
We will continue to send our weekly list of links and collage news [The Weekender] but there might also be other content (that used to be published in our magazine). We won't go crazy with the emails though, no worries.
Substack allows its newsletter writers, for lack of a better word, to offer paid subscriptions, and we decided to go for it. This does not mean that all our newsletters or activities will disappear behind a paywall. You can continue to read this for free as long as you want. Opting for a paid subscription is simply a way for you to support the collective and all we do. So is signing up to our Artist Directory. So think about it :)
