What is the " Micro Mecenat " ?

Micromecenat is a platform for all "Art people", to enjoy, participate, and share exciting artworks and projects. By applying the concept of "crowd-funding", we created a new system which allow individuals to actively participate in the art work with affordable budget.

« Mecenat” originally means a person or an act to support the culture of art and the creative activity(Philanthropy and Philanthropist). It is a French word taken from Maecenas, a historic character famous for supporting artists and poets in the Roman era.
However, we interprete this word further in a broad sense ; Mecenat = those who commit to art. Micromecenat is heading for a platform for all, curator, collector, artist… by providing a place where each player can show their creativities.
Any idea, artist recommend or plan are always welcome.

Office de H Message from Nayo Higashide

August 2012

By rapid development of the Internet and social networking, there have become some revolutionary movements in the field of art.
For example, France's Louvre Museum has successfully gathered cost for purchasing artworks by adopting method of “crowd funding” on the web.
It was the beginning of brand new relationship between artworks and their lovers.
It is a way to share (not direct ownership) the art, a non-material approach to attach the art.
It is also a beginning of the great tidings of change from the system that numbers of pieces of arts belong to one patron to the one exactly opposite – the one that many patrons belong to one piece of art.

In view of this change of trends, people paying expecting attention to the roles that played by individual mecenats (patron).
For instance, there is no such era that an individual collector’s viewpoint is important as this time.
Art in view of collectors is different from the view of curators – they are much more personal, emotionally attached, reflected his/her personal experience…, in one words, it is special art history for the person.
This time, the roles of collectors are on the shoulders of common people, not an individual who has a fortune of money.
And now is the time that those mecenats from common class will take place as the main characters of the movements of the art.

Buying artworks, usually, is not considered as a creative act.
However, those mecenats are the ones who give the value of the pieces, in a way they are the one creating the values of the artworks, with as same commitment as the artist.
Now, in the new era that is possible to share the value of one piece of the art, it is expected everyone to create a value of the art by being micro-mecenat.

The art is relevant to everyone.
Being mecenat is the brand-new, more personal way to relating with it in this modern day.
This is the most exiting way to commit with the art.

We call it the system of “micro-mecenat”, hoping everyone to relate the stories of artists from the first little step.

The art always reminds us our senses are indefinitely free.
The art is opened to everyone.
We all are the bearers of the culture.

We are aiming the platform that everyone -curators, collectors, and artists- can be a main role of the scene.

We welcome curators who want to create new sense of values with artists.
