LOVE IS A PRIZE!

Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone who may be celebrating out there ❤

In the office we were also celebrating our love – for the arts as we heard news from Brussels that WE DID IT! Third prize at the European Final of TiE’s International Business Plan Competition 2013-14! George and Zafeirenia went to make the pitch on behalf of the team and, as you can already see from the picture below, the judging panel were fierce.

However, travelling all that way clearly paid off – there will be celebrations back in the office on Monday!

In the office today, the rest of the team continued discussion of the ‘artFix Event’ taking place at the end of February and contacting artists and organisations on our shiny new telephone. So the office was nice and alive with ringing phones and voices – look forward to speaking to updating you all on Monday and enjoy the weekend!

P.S: Make sure you get your applications for ‘Calling All Artists’ in this weekend if you have not done so already! I would hate for all you talented people to miss out!

CAPITAL CONNECTION!

In the digital office of today, I’m sure you will agree that there is little that trumps the feeling of being securely connected to the Internet via your own router. For the artFix team today was that exciting day. It was great to go a whole day with no breaks in connection – previously even plugging in a phone charger in one socket would disrupt our ability to connect online. And then in those 15 minute to half an hour spaces we’d all purposefully rise to make a not-really-needed coffee. So this permanent Internet connection is definitely a more economical move.

We also have our own phone line which means we have our own phone number (see the artFix London website for details). So if you would like to discuss anything arty or would like a personal recommendation regarding the best coffees currently on the market then please do give us a call.

As always, the Call for Artists is the biggest news and will remain the biggest news up until Monday 17th February when applications will close. So make sure that you GET YOUR APPLICATIONS IN via the artFix London website or alternatively find out more by emailing info@artfixlondon.com

In the office, Joseph has made the finishing touches to a 5-minute video which I would encourage those of you who are looking to submit a film, to watch as a brilliant example.

Meanwhile, outside the office, George is being mentored by Viren Lal in preparation for the Tie International Business Plan Competition being held in Brussels on Friday. For the ArtFix team it’s exciting to be there as finalists in this competition particularly as it is so prestigious. Hopefully it will go well.

On the other side of town, Longlong took time out to have drinks and chat with some key potential investors at the Blueberry Bar in Shoreditch. Apparently, you will always meet someone interesting at this event so it will be interesting to hear what Longlong has to say tomorrow.
