what is the need
The Higher Education Statistics Agency statistics for in 2016 reveal that 64,115 students graduated from higher education in the creatives arts and design field. Whilst many will move into further education and into arts related jobs, a significant number have the ambition to become independent self sustaining artists. Emerging artists, having recently left art school, are struggling to make their way in the art world. Having focussed on their development as artists at art school, they often need help to learn business and other skills to enable them to make their way in the world and to avoid being unfairly exploited.
newplatform.art enables commercial organisations to fund emerging artists to display their work and to provide them with encouragement and confidence, as well as offering tangible skills.
newplatform.art scales up a programme which won the 2016 International Corporate Art Awards sponsored by the Italian Ministry of Culture & LUISS Business School.
