Social Artery

Role: Digital Mentoring Support

Organisation: Social Art Network (SAN)/AxisWeb


The Social ARTery was an interactive online exchange platform that helps facilitate remote collaboration and creative making. Conceived in response to the growth of community-centred art making and the need for better digital solutions to support participatory work as a result of Covid-19, the platform represents an alternative to mainstream social media sites, to create and present participatory art innovatively, run workshops, host peer-to-peer meetups and archive the learnings for the benefit of the wider artistic community.
