I represent a very low budget nonprofit initiative, what are the possibilities to get a promotion for free?
You can register your project space or artist initiative information for free by following this link. This feature is offered to nonprofit projects only and involves the registration of their main information, location, and opening hours. It does not include listings. The membership of registered project spaces could, in the future, be selected to be sponsored by the Adopt a Project Space program.

What is the Adopt a Project Space program?
Commercial galleries and art institutions joining Bpigs are at the same time "adopting" a project space, taking over the fee of a low budget initiative. Each gallery can choose its own project to support or be consulted by our team. 

I am an artist and I would like to show my work in Bpigs
We would love to hear from you! There are possibilities to show work in Bpigs.  You could make a proposal for a drawing or photo blog as part of our artist contribution series as are Strip it Down by Martin Skauen, Attending by Witte Wartena, and our various guest blogs. We are always interested to hear from artists who write. Although the B-side covers are curated, you can make a suggestion for upcoming issues.

I am an independent publisher and would like to get my books reviewed in the Book Hook series:
That is great. Book Hook is open to submissions by artists or independent publishers, and our team will be more than happy to receive your books and catalogues. Please contact us at info(at)bpigs.com with the subject line "Book Hook" for more details.

I am a writer/ art historian and I would like to write for Bpigs:
Bpigs' motto is: highlighting the art scene from the producer's point of view. In praxis this means that we do not encourage professional writers and journalists to write for us. We are interested in what people practicing art have to say about it, their colleagues, and the market. There are many other options to practice the "conventional" art journalism-copy/paste review style, some good although many bad. In Bpigs we do not wish to add to that, but focus on what is missing: new ideas, an alternative point of view, fresh reports. Having said that, we are also interested in people of any field trying themselves in any other field, so even if you are a journalist or a writer, feel free to contact the editor with a proposal.
