The greatest compliment I ever received was when someone once told me Artist Uprising was the Theo to their Vincent Van Gogh. Our #1 goal is to encourage all artists everywhere to explicitly express their innate gifting, which has the sobering possibility of marking history forever.
CONSULTANT | CURATOR | SPEAKER
Artist Uprising is spearheaded by founder & entrepreneur, Merrick Porchéddu.
Merrick Porchéddu graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Mike Curb College of Music Business from Belmont University with a bachelors in Entertainment Studies and Business.
Since, Porchéddu's background has ranged across many creative mediums: from syndicated radio programming, to A&R/artist management, to web-design, public relations, social media management, and becoming the General Manager of the fastest growing Dallas coworking space, where she oversaw activities of over 300 startup businesses.
In 2016, she set out to start her own startup, Artist Uprising - a concept she believed could efficiently bridge the gap between creatives and commerce. Since, the company has worked with companies such as Nike, MTV, Virgin America, Lush Cosmetics, Cypress Equities, Sony Entertainment, ESPN, ABC's The Bachelor, 7 Eleven, the NCAA, and many more.
Porchéddu lives in Dallas, TX with her husband and their two sons, Oliver and Silas.
"Artist need money. Brands need creativity. The relationship is a must. We are here to be the handshake and the resource channel for magic to happen for both sides." - Porchéddu
