About

We want to see more people in the art world developing their entrepreneurial skills and bringing innovation to this sector. We believe that many people in the arts are sitting on vast amounts of knowledge, expertise and passion; but their lack of business background, commercial expertise and fear of failing, prevent many from setting up their own ventures. Our goal is to inspire artists, curators, business people and whoever else in the art world, to pursue their ideas and achieve success in innovation in the art market.
