Who can join?

AWEteam is a moderated team with the following requirements:

Anyone selling on can participate in the First Friday Art Walk on by using the tag: FirstFridayArtWalk on any currently listed item in your shop.

If you want to further be part of this monthly event, promote your items, promote other artists on this team, and the First Friday Art Walk Weekend event itself, please join our team. We would love to have you!

If you decide to join:
1. Introduce yourself and add your social media, if any, to our Welcome 2013 thread.

2. Add our team tag AWETeam to a few of your favorite, trending, seasonally appropriate, etc items.

3. Add a few of those items in the special listings threads for colors, themes, etc.

4. Add up to 4 items per month to the official, monthly "First Friday Art Walk Event Thread". It is up to you if you want to run a promotion or just show off your new work.

5. Feel out the team, help promote, ask questions, jump on in.

A Few "House Keeping" Things for this team:
1. Please put any shop promotions not related to the First Friday Art Walk Event, Introductions, Events you are in, etc into the current monthly chat thread.

2. Please do not start a new thread without sending the captain a message and wait for a reply. The chat may be the appropriate place for your topic.

3. Please be aware of your listing habits. We want to avoid the threads seeming spammy with one shop listing every item from their shop. List a few of your best, and most relevant to that thread, and people that are interested will click through to see your entire shop.

Let's make this a fun and relaxed promotional team with a goal to show off and promote new work with a monthly deadline. And of course - you will meet some amazing creative people that you may become friends with for life.

Welcome to our Art Walk Etsy Team!
We hope you will join us...
Artist of Marsha Neal Studio and current Captain of the AWETeam.

About this team

The First Friday Art Walk Team (AWETeam) is the official team hosting the the "First Friday Art Walk Weekend" on

First Friday Art Walk on Etsy was established in June 2009, with the formal AWE Team being established in September 2009 to promote and support Etsy sellers interested in showing off work in their shops for First Friday Art Walk.

The First Friday "event" happens over the weekend of the First Friday of every month. It is a visual tour of the new work of our team members. Some shops like to offer promotions during this time, others just want to get their work out there.

As we enter into 2013, the AWETeam is changing up the ways we approach the FFAW "event" and how our team promotes items:
We are now creating posts a month in advance of First Friday, so we can all promote the team up until First Friday Art Walk Weekend!

We are looking for members to join that are interested in not only promoting their work, but other team members work as well through treasuries, blog posts, social media outlets, and other ideas that may come about as technology advances and the promotional flow of proper changes.

We need Members:
~That like to promote for upcoming trends and themes.
~That like are interested in helping re-establish this team and help it grow and possibly even as an event that proper would like to help promote on their calendar, blog and emails.
~That like to have a deadline to work towards to keep themselves creative and making new work and keep their shops fresh and new.
~That like to have their work seen, possibly purchased and promoted.
~That like to be part of team that starts to feel like extended family.

We do not need Members that:
~Post their items and disappear for months.
~Add the team tag to a few items, then never participate in team threads, events, etc.
We understand life gets the better of us at times, but please take just a moment to heart a few fellow member items. Heart, click, and comment on a few treasuries.

You don't have to be on the ball 24/7 with this team. But a quick weekly checking-in and adding items, or hearting a few items, or commenting on a team treasury, etc, is highly recommended and greatly appreciated!
