Hong Kong (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Collectrium, the global leader in cloud-based and mobile technology for the art world, is teaming up with the Australia China Art Foundation (ACAF) in a Friday, May 24, 2013, event to benefit Arts Can Do, the Foundation’s arts education program for children in rural China.
Natasha Rottman, Director of Operations at Collectrium, will be discussing the role of technology in cross-cultural artistic exchange at the event, in conjunction with Australia China Art Foundation and Artshare. Collectrium’s strong presence throughout Asia will assist ACAF in introducing Arts Can Do to its network of galleries and dealers throughout the region.
The event, held during Art Basel Hong Kong, will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel from 6:30pm-11:30pm and will feature a charity auction hosted by Bonhams Hong Kong. All proceeds will benefit Arts Can Do and ACAF’s continued work on children’s arts education programs in rural China.
In recent years, Collectrium has emerged as a technology leader serving the booming Asian art market, with clients that include Art Stage Singapore, Eli Klein Gallery, The Oni Zazen Collection, and many others. Visitors to the upcoming Art Basel Hong Kong (May 23-26, 2013) will be able to explore the fair on Collectrium’s ArtCapture app, the definitive mobile tool for the art fairgoer.
As the art world becomes increasingly globalized, dealers, collectors, and art fairs are turning to cloud-based management solutions to stay connected. Similarly, cloud-based platforms can augment the reach of cross-cultural education programs such as Arts Can Do by connecting artists to audiences around the globe.
Arts Can Do, developed by ACAF, is an art education program that uses art as therapy for children in isolated villages in China. Many remote villages have witnessed an exodus of able-bodied men and women as they migrate to cities to find work. As a result, scores of children are left behind with limited parental contact. Consistent with its mission of supporting artistic exchange, ACAF has initiated a fellowship program that provides artist residencies across China and Australia. Both Australian and Chinese artists in the fellowship program will participate in the Art Therapy for Village Children program.
