Attibo, a tech startup in Ottawa, recently released SmARTstudio, a location-based app to help independent artists promote their work and enable art-lovers to connect with the arts community.
Art is experiential - which means that you have to be there to fully appreciate it! By using GPS to locate artists, venues, events, and public art locations that are nearby, the app makes it easier for the public to connect with their local arts community.
Users can use the app to find local artists, events, galleries, and public art nearby. The app features a mobile gallery and directory so that users can search local artists and preview their art. It also has constant updates on current and upcoming events within the community. Users can also find free and public art that is featured around their city.
SmARTstudio makes use of user generated content, so artists, venues, and even everyday art-lovers can visit the website to create a listing to share.
The app is currently focused on content in Ottawa, but it has been fine-tuned over the last several months and is ready for audiences across Canada.
