Many people have contacted me regarding Platasso. The majority really get it and are fully behind what we are trying to accomplish. Others ask me the same question: “what is Platasso? Is it like a LinkedIn for the arts?”
Simply put, it is a lot more multi-dimensional and holistic in purpose than a platform such as LinkedIn, Artsy, DeviantArt or Facebook.
Platasso is an arts-philosophy social network and online museum designed for everyone and anyone. It’s aim is to connect the wider community to all genres of art: music, performance, literature and art– through philosophy.
It is an educational and cultural communications tool where we develop self awareness and have open discussions about it.
Platasso is a process: it will exhibit art content; then we open up with events, online tools and content, and an open forum to invite people to learn more about themselves through all arts. The end outcome will be that the individual then expresses what they discover, through creativity.
This project is all about engagement, transparency and unification. The art exhibition and associated arts content will be delivered through philosophical context and E.I.
Our purpose is what sets us apart from other art platforms like Useum, Artsy and DeviantArt as well as social networks such as Facebook and LinkedIn.
If you believe in the Platasso project and think it is a worthy cause, please Donate Now to help us build the platform with Parsons School of Design this August.
