Describe the problem that you want to address. How does this problem effect people in their daily lives?

The Service aims to provide a platform where creatives can meet and collaborate for the creation of art, fashion and photography projects. It will give the opportunity of the interested parties, such as artists, photographers, make-up artists, designers, graphic designers, hair stylists, stylists, models, interior designers, actors/actresses, musicians, dancers  etc to post casting calls for Paid or Unpaid Projects, giving the chance for the young creatives of the region to meet and create art, photography,  fashion, theater, video and media projects.

 

 

It will be an online platform, a website and mobile application, where people can create their profiles and join with others. The casting calls will be categorized and each person can activate the section that they would be interested in receiving notifications.
 
 
Describe your proposed solution – How does your approach build on or add to more traditional ways of dealing with problem?

This service will bring creative individuals together and will give them the opportunity to find the appropriate persons to collaborate and create high standard projects, reinforcing the cultural development of the region. There are in fact so many young artists in all fields, who, due to lack of jobs, are forced to leave the country, or leave their creativity behind. As there are very few professional opportunities, the service will give them a tool that they can use to collaborate and create projects without the need of a company or an organization to support them, leading into their own development and improvement and thus to the improvement of the society, where people will be able to express their creativity and do what they love to do. With this development, skills, style and confidence will be boosted, and young people will find their way into the market.
