Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence has recently joined Wescover which is an online platform that connects the people, places, and stories behind design objects that impact our everyday lives and that credits and celebrates the Creators behind our experiences.
Wescover also works together with Google Lens which helps artists get discovered using AR/visual search. This visual search lets you look up what’s in front of you and, in the case of Wescover, leads you to an exact match. It’s an empowering tool for anyone interested in art. In the near future, Wescover will use this tool to reveal more 3D objects like furniture and light fixtures too. The platform features also an interactive map that automatically updates when items are added so visitors can see the range of the creative work growing on the map.
Art Aia is very pleased to collaborate with non-profit organization TransCultural Exchangein Hello World, an international project which represents a powerful gesture of global solidarity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
TransCultural Exchange (TCE) is a non-profit organization whose stated mission is “to foster a greater understanding of world cultures through large-scale global projects, artist exchanges and, most notably, a biennale International Conference on Opportunities in the Arts.” TransCultural Exchange was founded by Mary Sherman in 1989.
“Below is a link to Hello World, an international project, where artists throughout the world have submitted art works to share with all of us. We hope you enjoy this gesture of goodwill and solidarity from our colleagues around the globe.
Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence is an international art residency for artistic production and research that combines art, environmental sustainability, and Eco-therapy practices. It focuses on the development of the creative process, facilitating cultural exchange across borders. The venue is located near the Comune of Sesto al Reghena in the north-eastern Italian region Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
