About Us

Platasso is a platform that nurtures creative expression while connecting artists, collaborators and the wider community to conversations that matter.

Join a globally inclusive network where philosophical musings and art appreciation converge.

We encourage thought provocateurs, open-minded voyeurs—everyone—to obliterate all preconceived notions of pretension and elitism so that you can sing. Does a work of art speak to you? Share your thoughts, your emotions, your dreams.

This is Platasso.

Praise for Platasso

Platasso is an online community that coaxes my inner creative to flourish in a space that celebrates art and self-expression. There is no substitute for this intellectual bliss.

In our present time, the immediacy in the flow of information makes the novelty fail to surprise us. This is not the case with Platasso, the platform created by Laura Curwood. The way she has designed to create a global art flow, made me recover my capacity of awe.

Philosophy

Alain Badiou on How We Fall and Stay in Love (Brain Pickings)

Love is a tenacious adventure… Real love is one that triumphs lastingly, sometimes painfully, over the hurdles erected by time, space and the world. – from “In Praise of Love”

Our Aim

To create a holistic and innovative forum that empowers members to discuss art, philosophy and catharsis.

Art can make you escape, make political and personal statements, think, raise awareness, question the world, tell stories, record memories and keep them alive, challenge ideas and the world. See the world poetically. See the world as you wish.
