CREATE your future.
Baltimore’s Gifted is an e-commerce based art and fashion initiative for black youth artist in Baltimore City. The web based creative platform is designed for participants to showcase and sell their original art and art derived accessories online, at pop-up shops, and in commercial spaces. Products include: apparel, coffee mugs, pillows, tote bags, and canvas & posters.
Baltimore’s Gifted is a hands on, real time, learning tool where youth develop skills in design, merchandising, and apparel production in a live e-commerce environment. Youth retain 80% of net sales!
With the help of a dedicated advisory team, participates work through a self paced action plan to meet their personal and professional development goals. By phase 3, participants will have the opportunity to lead and own the project through management, and marketing roles. Youth that decide to take on professional roles will have real world working experience to add to a resume before they graduate high school or college; or access to opportunities and resources to better equip them for a freelance career.
*Baltimore’s Gifted was a 3 year program that launched Feb. 2016. The program has concluded.
