Today we are excited to announce that we are launching a brand new feature that we first announced in May, enabling everyone to Download Artworks from USEUM, making art accessible like never before! The Download Artworks page can be found on the main menu to "Artworks" > "Free Images" > "Download Artworks".
Foteini Valeonti, founder of USEUM, had the honour to be interviewed by WEgate, a network promoting women's entrepreneurship in Europe. The interview, which can be found below, was also promoted by the Enterprise Europe Network!
With a background in computer science and interactive digital media, Foteini Valeonti started USEUM during her PhD studies at University College London under the title ‘Making Art more Accessible with Crowdsourcing’. The project benefitted from seed-funding and it is the first-ever crowdsourced art museum. Today, it employs 14 people and WEgate wanted to know how it all started.
