Artworld is an app built for the arts sector.

From March 2020 to March 2021, the Artworld team developed Artworld v. 1. This version was ready to share, but unfortunately, we did not receive the necessary funding required to continue maintaining and improving upon our MVP beginnings. This website remains as a record of our work. Thank you to everyone who followed, supported and participated in the project along the way.

Is this even possible, one might ask!

Artworld is a digital social space for the arts sector, built to foster community amongst artists, arts-workers, and the general public through sharing info and creating content — without profiting from advertising or data collecting.

Artworld’s mission is to support the arts sector by organizing, presenting, and sharing various events, projects, and interests of its users. Our vision is an arts sector with more reach, flow, and cross-pollination between different communities.
