Welcome to the world of Artworks. We are a platform where we mix the arts and business from around the world. The arts may be the most powerful way to effect change, whether political, commercial, social or personal.

Our mission is to change the way you imagine arts and business together. So our work is about connecting individuals, companies, and societies to cultural organisations. Not for the sake of looking good, but for the sake of better and more sustainable business.

On this website you find all the projects that we are currently running and the various ways you can support our work.
