Who are we?
Based in London, we are a decentralised certified social enterprise, entirely run by a rich and mixed collective of volunteers composed of curators, art historians, copywriters, marketers and creative minds.
What do we do?
Everything we do – from our talks, to our stories, podcasts, artists’ profile, artists residencies, and VR Exhibitions – is to offer you a different art experience.
What’s our mission?
The art world needs to recognize the important contributions of women artists to digital art, but it also needs to recognize the significance of digital art itself.
We are on a mission to promote women artists who create with and in New Media because Digital Art induces deeper reflection on, and interpretation of, the world around us.
As a result, we participate in the democratisation of art and open new avenues of thought, expression and debate.
What are our values?
We thrive in a broad network built on
- Diversity – We are a community of rich and diverse people.
- Boldness – We push the boundaries to grow together.
- Humility – We always place the interests of the collective before our own.
- Respect and care for others – We make every person feel comfortable in their beliefs, decisions, and perspectives.
- Ownership – We take responsibility for our actions.
- Openness – We are honest and transparent in all our dealings.
We are a decentralised non-for-profit and a certified social enterprise.
What is a “social enterprise”?
Social Enterprises are businesses with a Social Impact. It means that the company invests 50% of its surplus into “charitable projects”.
“Charitable projects” include but are not limited to support Digital Artists by facilitating project deliveries and commissioning new artworks.
Art can be a tool for social impact! As a social enterprise, we place Women Digital Artists at the heart of our business.
Although, Women Artists have a 72.9% ROI, in the arts, women artists are still under-represented. With a higher rate in New Media Art.
