Exhibition in Locations with Online Auction
What this is about
In addition to online and live auctions, Auction for Climate Action offers a third way to generate donations for climate protection: A combination of online auction, combined with a live exhibition. In addition to the exhibition in the premises, the art will be offered online. The bids are then posted on social media posts or by e-mail to the artist, like in the online auctions. The online auction will close at the end of the exhibition period.
We are looking for locations, location scouts and artists, as you can read here. Below is a description of how it works.
we are looking for locations
We are looking for restaurants, cafés, hotels, doctors‘ surgeries, salons, waiting areas, etc. where art can be temporarily exhibited in order to attract online bids.
- Dear locations, if you are interested in unique works of art and would like to make an contribution to climate protection, please contact us at email@example.com . We will first collect interested locations for an e-mail distribution list (Bcc), which we will then use to inform you about how things are going and which artworks are available. Below we have attached an e-mail that you can send to the selected artist.
If someone would like to do such an exhibition, but with a live auction as an event at the end, this is of course also possible. Please let us know and we will work out everything else together.
We look forward to your suggestions and expressions of interest!
we are looking for location scouts
In order to collect interested locations more efficiently and approach them directly, we are looking for one or more volunteer location scouts for various locations who could identify exhibition opportunities and possibly also support a live event on site.
We are particularly interested in: Berlin, Munich, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Radolfzell/Konstanz on Lake Constance, Bremen, Hamburg, Cologne, Frankfurt & Bayreuth. We have selected these cities to be more specific. They are among the largest locations and/or someone from us or one of the organizations is on site.
But any other location where there are various venues and creative people is also possible. As soon as someone is interested in a location, we will highlight it here. Anyone can also individually point out a location with exhibition possibilities to us and inform us of this without having to do this several times as a location scout.
- Dear potential location scouts, would you like to approach cool restaurants, cafés and the like and tell them about Auction for Climate Action? Then get in touch with us without obligation at firstname.lastname@example.org . You can decide for yourself how much time you want to spend. All we need is a certain degree of reliability and, of course, lots of fun!
Besides this we are also looking for a Location manager. These and more searches you can find here.
We are looking for artists
As soon as a city has been determined, we will look for artists in/near the city. We will announce this in an open call. If you would like to be notified by e-mail, we will be happy to put you on a corresponding e-mail distribution list for your city.
- Dear artist, if you would like to apply for one of the locations below, please send us an e-mail and tell us the location, the web address where your works can best be seen (the exact link to see them) and attach three photos of possible works for it.
To the application with more details for this you get here.
How it works
Once a city has been determined where there are several interested locations, we will look for artists in that city who might be willing to make one or more works of art available. We will then create an online gallery for each location with three possible artworks (only if they are not currently scheduled otherwise) per artist and links to other artworks. The locations can then see directly what they are interested in. If both agree, the works will be hung there for a certain period of time (e.g. two months) and auctioned online at the end. The participation information for online auctions applies.
There will also be a buy-it-now option, where the amount will be between the minimum bid and the normal price. In this way, people who do not wish to participate in the auction or would like to have the work more quickly or for certain can receive the artwork.
If many works of art by the same artist are exhibited in a location, we can reconsider the exact conditions.

e-mail for the locations
Draft email from the location to the artist (with email@example.com in the cc):
Here is a draft e-mail that the locations can copy out to create a cover letter as easily as possible. Please delete and add something accordingly. Subject: AfCA exhibition in the restaurant or similar. In all correspondence, please add firstname.lastname@example.org in the Cc so that we are informed about everything.
We were very interested to see your artwork at Auction for Climate Action and would like to ask if you would like to exhibit with us for the benefit of a climate protection NGO. The details are listed below by AfCA.
There will be one post per exhibition and artist on all AfCA social media channels, which you and we would share at least on our main platform (e.g. as a collab partner); (if something else is to be done, please write in the email). Plus a story with a link.
