Promoting art and culture, preserving the cultural heritage and ensuring that art and culture can develop are social and political concerns. Our worldwide unique web platform allery.co promotes and supports these tasks and goals. Help art and culture! The development work on our portal is already well advanced. But we need your financial support for the phase of completion up to the market launch.
allery.co is the world's first internet portal to network all artists and cultural workers under one roof and bring them together with their fans and interested parties. The platform is designed to be multilingual and international.
From local initiatives to global campaigns - allery.co opens up generous presentation areas and attractive markets with optimal marketing opportunities for products and services to everyone involved. The portal has the potential to create new talents and artistic works.
allery.co will set unique impulses in the art and culture business and raise the voice for a community characterized by creativity, community spirit and tolerance.
The concept was presented to a selection of artists, gallery owners, museum makers, agents, organizers and collectors in advance. Their suggestions were incorporated into the project. Now those in the know await the launch of the platform with great curiosity and keen interest.
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
We offer artists and cultural workers as well as service providers the opportunity to communicate with one another, with fans and consumers and to do business.
In this way, artists can use our platform to increase their income based on their talent and ideas - as providers of their products or their skills.
The target group are all actors in the art and culture industry as well as service providers from the art and culture-related economic sectors. This includes:
visual artists such as painters, sculptors and performers, photographers, actors, dancers, musicians and singers, gallery owners, festival organizers and film producers. We also have a lot to offer for museums, teaching and educational institutes, publishers and theaters. There should also be caterers, talent scouts, agencies, art lovers, collectors and other interested parties.
Why would you support this project?
The preservation of cultural diversity - especially now in times of Corona - is a matter of great concern to you and us. It is therefore particularly important at the moment that artists and cultural workers are given the opportunity to establish and cultivate connections and to improve communication among themselves and with interested parties. We also pave new ways for them to present their work and skills.
Every user of our platform will benefit. Not only creative people can offer their products and services on it. Those interested in the cultural scene also get a completely new look behind the scenes and are kept up to date on what's going on there. You can contact the artist via our portal. They can also secure access to (online) events or high-quality courses, for example. The intensive use of the platform also has the potential to create a variety of new and surprising projects.
Starting and running an allery.co account is absolutely free for everyone. With an extension to the premium subscription (€ 9 / month) or Premium Pro subscription (€ 36/3 months), users have access to additional features. There are discounts for longer periods. In addition, allery.co will charge a uniquely low transaction fee for all goods and services traded on the marketplace - it is only 8%.
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
A lot of energy, passion and our own know-how have already flowed into the allery.co portal in countless hours of work. So far we have been able to finance this preliminary work with our own money. Now we need your financial help. Because until the final online start of allery.co, clever and creative programmers have to support us.
We will use the campaign money to pay these experts, as well as designers, artists and technicians. They will drive the project forward and constantly expand it. We also use it to pay the rent for our office space.
If the second funding goal is achieved, we will expand the functions of the platform and, among other things, build up marketing and sales activities as well as support for users. In addition, we can then cover further personnel costs and monthly rents for our office space.
Who are the people behind the project?
Shahram Shoaei, who has a degree in business informatics, was able to inspire a team of creative people with his vision years ago as a source of ideas and founder. On-site in Hamburg and increasingly online, he and this group are constantly developing the concept further, keeping a close eye on the arts and culture professionals. And at the same time with so much overview that you don't lose sight of the big picture - lets make the big picture real.
