Artworld is an app built for the arts sector.

Artworld's vision is to create a platform that fosters connection amongst our peers, friends, and publics.

For our closed-testing period, we are focusing on developing a community of users based in and around the greater Metro Vancouver area, on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. Thanks to all who have applied to be a beta-tester. Applications are now closed.

Artworld is currently on pause as we seek further funding. For more information, feel free to get in touch at:

Artistic Development:  Artworld’s purpose is to support the development and dissemination of artistic practice.

Diversity:  We cover a diverse range of practices to reflect the interdisciplinary, intersectional, and intercultural spaces our sector creates.

Equity:  Our platform aims to promote equitable access to information and resources that empower users to further engage with their peers and publics.

Engagement:  We believe that through art, we can advocate for and affect social awareness and change for the betterment of all peoples.


Artworld is a digital social space for the arts sector, built to foster community amongst artists, arts-workers, and the general public through sharing info and creating content — without profiting from advertising or data collecting.

Artworld’s mission is to support the arts sector by organizing, presenting, and sharing various events, projects, and interests of its users. Our vision is an arts sector with more reach, flow, and cross-pollination between different communities.
