Together We Are Stronger.

At Finders Keepers we know COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on small businesses, especially anyone in the arts, creative and entertainment industries. We’d love to hear from you and know genuinely how you are doing?

What impact has this had on your business and creative practices.
We believe now more than ever we need to support each other, lift each other up, because we believe - together we are stronger.

We wanted to gather some data and stories from our seller community, and that of the whole Australian design community. So we’re opening this up to other handmade and creative businesses to give the opportunity to have their say too.

The data and information we collate will be recorded anonymously and published in a report for everyone to have access to.

Please help us share this survey link so we can help to have a voice for the creative handmade community and do our bit to help rebuild.
