Commercialisation

INLAND promueve la producción y promoción de productos agrícolas y de arte hechos en los pueblos con los que coopera por artistas o colectivos que desean ganarse la vida con la tierra. Como fuente de actividad participativa de autosuficiencia financiera, promueve la venta directa, el marketing local y los mecanismos de arte y agricultura apoyados por la comunidad.

Actualmente, INLAND está produciendo:

– Aceite de oliva y otros productos de oliva de los antiguos bosques de la cordillera de Mallorca donde se encuentra la Escuela Elemental de Artesanía.

– Vino “La Unión”, elaborado para INLAND como parte del proyecto de reunir a pequeños enólogos de Labastida, La Rioja Alavesa.

– Queso de la Escuela de Pastores.

Estos productos se comercializan combinados con series originales y / o limitadas de obras de arte de diferentes artistas como una forma de mantener la estructura.

Micro-credits

INLAND has set up a loan scheme where small amounts of capital are lent at low interest to peer initiatives to start or develop their own projects. Once returned, these amounts are available for other applicants. Currently a credit of near 15.000 € has been granted to develop local production, elaboration and direct marketing of products from ancient olive groves in the mountains of Mallorca.

Access to Land

INLAND has a database of land offered by local partners for aligned art and rural initiatives

INLAND acts as  intermediary between local partners and applicants and  elaborates the conditions with the person or entity interested in finding a use for these abandoned farms, villages and plots of land. It organizes and evaluates interested applicants by providing advice and training in the preparation and implementation stages of the project.

INLAND offers as well the possibility of marketing the produce of these newly installed rural cells.

The agreements for access vary from place to place, and can take the form of land leases at no cost, low rent or funding schemes once a solid and feasible proposal is put together and approved jointly with the local partner.
