The Company

artFix is a network of physical spaces around the world that combine coffee with creative self-expression. It is the combination of a café, an exhibition/performance space, a co-working space and an academy. Its patrons are both the authors of creative content on show and its audience. 
To Live Everyday Life as a Work of Art 

To enable creative self-expression
To empower individuals through the acquisition of new creative skills 
To liberate them from the confines of daily routine and make every day meaningful and fun
To increase communication among  people and community engagement  
To make creative content more accessible, fun and affordable

artFix has four components:
- A Café, where people can relax, meet, conceive creative ideas and form creative teams.  
- A Co-Working space, where creative ideas are incubated and planned.  
- An Academy where seminars and workshops are organised, business and creative courses are taught, healthy living and workout classes are on offer.
- A Performance/Exhibition space where people rehearse and showcase their ideas. 

All around the space, fixes of creative content such as music, theatre, dance, exhibitions etc., lasting no more than 30 minutes each, are presented on a rapidly rotating basis. 

How artFix works
artFix operates as a café, with a creative twist. Visitors can enjoy a coffee, or a drink, or food, and, at the same time, experience fixes of creative content or create their own. artFix is constantly monitoring creative content available around its spaces, and it is curating, customising and associating it to its patron’s tastes, so that it becomes more accessible and enjoyable to them. Artists and Creative Industry professionals are attracted to the artFix business model because it is a one-stop creative platform where they may conceive, prepare and showcase their work as well as generate revenue from it.
