Who are we?
We are an association that works to promote emerging artists and entrepreneurs working within the creative industry, but also cater to more established entities. Our exhibitions are international both in scope and spirit, as they are held across the globe, and we strive to remain SDG-oriented, with a special focus on sustainability and the environment.
In setting up our exhibitions, we hope to increase appreciation amongst different cultures for each other.
Artists are great entrepreneurs and as such, we seek to enhance their professional capacity and network building.
Our main objective is to empower emerging artists around the world by:
- Providing access to international art markets.
- Giving artists a platform from which to promote their works.
- Providing art markets with a constant source of new talents.
- Providing a better understanding of global issues through art.
- Art appreciation
