What we do
Our aim is to build equity in the field of art
At Symposia we aim to create a place where artists can learn tips and techniques to propel their careers forward, and share their ideas to learn and flourish with their fellow artists.
Our goal is to help artists thrive by removing barriers, enabling collaboration, and amplifying impact. As we build this future together with you, we hope to create a world where creativity has no limits and everyone can pursue art as an economic imperative.
Our mission is to nurture artists and empower them to create value for themselves and for society.
We envision a world where an artist's only limitation is their imagination.
Why we do this
A prosperous society needs artists
The need for creativity has never been greater as we find ourselves more physically isolated than ever before, and artists have the unique power to bring us together on a human level.
Artists need support
Artists need to access to reliable and informative resources so that they may learn how to get started & how to push their practice forward.
By enabling direct connections between artists, knowledge barriers are broken as they share resources to find success.
Who we are
We are a multidisciplinary team committed to enriching the lives of all artists.
We spent hundreds of hours researching the art market and interviewing artists individually; in order to identify a unifying need that they often don't have access to. Art critiques were the most common need, and the most important to grow and develop their practice.
All artists should have access to reliable, helpful feedback that increases, rather than decreases, their understanding of how they can improve a piece of art. This is a critical component to building a more equitable world for artists.
