About Agora

Agora Digital Art symbol

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 storiespodcastsartists’ profileartists 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.

What are our values?

We thrive in a broad network built on diversity, transparency, openness and mutual respect. As a result, we participate in the democratisation of art and open up new avenues of thought, expression and debate.

We are a decentralised non-for-profit and a certified social enterprise.

Agora Digital Art is a certified Social Enterprise by SEUK

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.

Social Impact

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.

Our Talents

A skilled and multicultural community of volunteers, around the world, supporting an expansive network of international artists, curators and gallerists.

Agora is a member of NCVOReach Volunteering and Social Enterprise UK.

Agora is always looking for talents who are willing to share their skills for our cause. There are always open-ended positions such as curators and copywriters, and there are specific volunteers positions such as Fundraisers, Grant Writers, Digital Marketing Advisor, and Public Relations Specialist.
