At House of Coco we are forever downloading new apps on our phone, just see the constant ‘your memory is full’ message on our iPhones. Recently, we stumbled across a new kid on the block, Wistla, which is a new social activity network. Built around community, Wistla is completely user-defined and gives movements a voice, it is designed to enhance the way we share and experience events and personal moments.
An early adopter of Wistla, Art16 returns this year to Olympia London from 19-22 May, showcasing a diverse cross-section of work by contemporary artists from around the world.
With over 100 galleries from over 30 countries at Art16, Wistla will be the only place you can discover a new community, join in and share experiences and content.
As part of its role as official technology partner, Wistla will help democratise art for the beginner, helping to make art more accessible for everyone. Exclusive content will include notifications for impromptu performances, artist talks, as well as helpful guides such as top ten pieces of art to take in.
A daily prompt will also be issued so that art lovers can comment on their feelings regarding key pieces, sharing thoughts and developing new relationships with other users through the app.
In a world where technology reigns supreme, Wistla believes there is no replacement for human interaction. The app works as a community builder to help form friendships in the real world, meeting like minded people and forming social circles.
Wistla can be downloaded from the App store and Google Play. Make sure you download Wistla and follow Art16 for exclusive content and information!
