ArtAnywhere - Christine Renaud - DemoCamp Toronto 21

Christine Renaud presented ArtAnywhere at DemoCamp Toronto 21, July 28th, 2009 at the Velma Rogers theatre:

In essence, ArtAnywhere allows artists to rent their art on a monthly basis to people with an interest in art. The cost of renting is fixed, so more expensive work is simply rented for more months in total before it is "paid off." Sounds promising, although it sounded during the question period like they haven't worked out all the details with respect to how to deal with damage done to art, and so forth.

Still, it could be of benefit to all (revenue for artists, art for the general populace), and there's obviously a profit model, so it'll be interesting to see where this goes.

Thanks for sharing this Geoffrey!

We are indeed fine tuning the logistics of how to best serve the artists and the renters while creating a scalable social enterprise. There are some challenges, but nothing that cannot be addressed.

We always appreciate feedback: do not hesitate to contact me if you have any comments/questions on the presentation or the product.
