Rhode Island School of Design, nestled on College Hill in Providence, RI, has long been considered one of the top art schools in the world. Yesterday, while presenting at a panel on campus with Kickstarter and Quirky, I announced that Etsy is kicking off our first official alum and student team. We’re so excited to be collaborating with RISD to gather students and alumni who are Etsy members. Whether you’re a seller or a shopper, as long as you are a RISD alum or a currently enrolled student, you’re welcome to join this group.
We’re reaching out to other schools and hope to foster these micro-communities on Etsy. Please comment below if you’d like your school to be involved.
