Calling all new and aspiring artists! This morning the energy has been high to meet and converse with artists specialising in a variety of different types of visual and performance arts. This is in preparation for our mock-up pop-up store which has now become a confirmed event, taking place on the 27th and 28th February 2014! Get excited!
So today, alongside the pattering of rain on the windows, the office was alive with the furious rain of fingertips on keyboards as Jilke and Sophie contacted several museums, galleries and dance companies with information about artFix and the benefits it would bring to have them on board. It is fantastic that so many organisations have responded so positively towards the project. If anything it gives us greater confidence in what we are doing which is why we are so enthusiastic about the mock-up pop-up store.
Taking a break outside of the office, Nadia met up with Margherita Franceschi, a performance artist who used to run “Cardboard Cabaret,” and is currently looking to get back into physical performance. Her reason for taking an interest in artFix is that ‘It’s a concept I didn’t meet before, therefore it’s already interesting!’ Margherita’s love of art is the opportunity to ‘let the audience feel part of something special’ and this is what will be so unique about the artFix store; whilst people can come and browse art, they can equally come and enjoy a very interactive experience which has the potential to enrich their minds.
So please contact us if you are interested in having your work in our first store!
