Who are we?

Art is Business is a platform for the corporate, private and arts scene to meet, share knowledge and create new cooperations. This is made possible through channels such as the Art is Business print and online media, the Connections events, the Art is Business Awards, corporate and art trainings as well as the Art is Business community and its Circle of Friends.
