For years, there has been a thriving fine art scene in Dortmund, Germany, including trans-regional exhibitions, exciting creative people and emerging artists. On top of that, the interlinking of the local art scenes stretches beyond city borders and transforms participants of contemporary art into representatives of the new Ruhr Area. The Ruhr Area as a foundation for art is to be made more attractive especially in an international context also to prevent a migration of creatives and artists.
Emerging Artists Dortmund includes a contest, an exhibition, portfolio consulting, career plannings and cultural education. After its successful launch in 2015, 2017 is also all about highlighting excellent artists and creative workers from Dortmund to actively integrate them into networks, provide them with the necessary tools for further development and to work professionally as well as successfully. The aim of Emerging Artists is to enable artists and creative workers to achieve the professionality and publicity that is necessary for their future career.
For the first time, an international artist (from the Netherlands) is involved in the exhibition, partners from smARTplaces are joining in the jury and consulting artists via social media.
