Time for movement

I’m writing this in the cafe in Barclays Fintech Accelerator, in Shoreditch, a five story building housing innovative financial technology startups from a global field. They’re about to announce the next ten companies in their accelerator cohort.

Perhaps the art market could do with a similar approach.
Open call, find the best, the innovators and imagineers who come equipped with the craft to create the future they can see. Nurture them for a couple of months, introduce them to mentors, give them collective studio space, connect them to other artists, to buyers, to the eco system. After three months they demo what they’ve built, what they’ve become. To a room of journalists and dealers and buyers and investors.
It’s how they do it in the tech scene.

The art market is lagging in terms of innovation and how it rolls. There’s a lot to learn.

The market itself is in need of disruptive innovation.

Time for movement. Much needed.
