How did everything start?
In 2016, Judith and Frank started organizing a series of living room concerts and art experiences in private spaces. The idea: creating a new format for live art experiences, where both, young artists and art-interested people can experience arts in a unique, personal atmosphere. The first living room concert took place at Judith’s living room with the band Buntspecht. Within the next two years, more than 100 sessions followed with over 200 artists of various art genres, taking place in Vienna, Munich, Budapest, and Los Angeles.
What’s our motivation?
Definitely the belief that arts bring together people regardless of ethnicity, language, political- and sexual orientation, or any other differentiating factor. Additionally, half of our team is strongly affiliated with music. Experiences made as active artists as well as academic trainings and researches provide a solid ground for our work with artists and the creative industries. We strongly believe that with our vision and our concept built on collaboration, we will substantially change how arts will be created, promoted, and experienced in the future. Thanks to the positive feedback we receive from happy community members, we’re encouraged to push even harder to reach our goals again and again.
