The European art project EL-DRAC is motivated by the reality of life for artists in Europe. Young and committed art with the desire for inter-cultural and international exchange deserves - and gets here - the chance to be exhibited and commercialized all over Europe. EL-DRAC promotes the current political approach to maintain unity through diversity in Europe by means of cooperation, interaction and joint projects. EL-DRAC is an innovative and additional art intermediary and works as an informal network for artists, buyers and art dealers. EL-DRAC is a reliable international partner for existing local structures. EL-DRAC organizes the dialogue.
EL-DRAC brings all partners in the art market in a smooth and easy way together, artists, art agents, galerists, commisioners, selectors and art lovers and - of course - supporters. EL-DRAC is a virtual NGO (and also non-profit-organisation). We share only information between our partners. El-DRAC is organized as a swarm of fish. Each partner is independant and free, and gives his power to this network for free. Real projects are initiated by our members, sometimes under the brand of EL-DRAC, sometimes not. Communication makes business. We are the European art communication network.
EL-DRAC itself is virtual, but the members and projects are real. You can feel and see the real results of EL-DRAC in contemporary art exhibitions, in reunions, in workshops, in festivals, art fairs, art markets and artist education. In such a project some of us decide to make something real, e.g. an exhibition. Sometimes some of us think it is better to use another organisational form like an association or company to make a project real. We call these children of EL-DRAC. We call ihemspin-offs. Artindent.org, Artisthelp.org and Artsurprise.org are real spin-offs.
