Pride from Prince Albert sells on eBay - paNOW

Summary

“I thought taking the risk was worth it because the design was nice, I identify with it and so do so many people around me and I wanted to bring it to the forefront of the conversation,” said Carpenter.

The thought of competing in a large competition run by a global company was daunting, to say the least.

“I thought taking the risk was worth it because the design was nice, I identify with it and so do so many people around me and I wanted to bring it to the forefront of the conversation,” said Carpenter.

The thought of competing in a large competition run by a global company was daunting, to say the least.

“It seemed really impossible to be able to partake in because it was run by eBay and marked and a really big seeming opportunity,” Carpenter said.

According to Carpenter, being an artist in the modern world is difficult to stay in and requires a social media presence.

According to the company’s website, artists aged 19 to 24 were given the chance to be in a one-day Art on Sneaker Workshop, which was followed by a 48-hour window to apply the learning to a pair of plain white PUMA sneakers.

For Carpenter, that meant using cultural and personal meaning and applying it to the concept of Pride.

“For Pride, there’s so many words and variations and identities to take into mind, but I wanted one that I could identify with as well as one that could identify with the people around me,” said Carpenter.

“Especially around here where even the Indigenous people tend to be more discriminatory towards queer people,” said Carpenter. “I’ve witnessed that in my own communities where they just didn’t want to accept that two-spirit was a thing still.

From a design perspective, the job was difficult because there was a whole new style to learn and deliver in a few days.

“By the time the second day came, I made it, but I had to pull an all-nighter before the shipping time started,” she said.

To get the look she wanted, the laces were dyed, the nubs were coloured and she hand-painted the rest of the shoes, which made for an arduous task.

After the competition ended, the shoes were auctioned off by eBay with the money going to a Pride-related cause.

Carpenter’s shoes sold for over $100.
