Le programme de mise en service des NEO
NEO et le Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers de l’Université OCAD se sont associés pour créer le programme de mise en service des NEO afin de commémorer le lancement de nouvelles inscriptions de sociétés et de fonds à la bourse NEO.
Peindre une image plus lumineuse
Comme pour l'art, chaque nouvelle cotation sur la bourse NEO est une déclaration audacieuse de création et pour nous, un désir de créer quelque chose de significatif pour les investisseurs et les entreprises. Le programme de mise en service des NEO a été lancé en 2020 en collaboration avec l'Université OCAD, pour commémorer les nouvelles inscriptions à la bourse NEO d'une manière unique et personnelle.
À travers le programme, NEO a sélectionné et retenu cinq artistes émergents de l'OCAD U, offrant une diversité de voix et d'approches artistiques à présenter. Le programme est notre façon de soutenir une communauté artistique dynamique et talentueuse tout en célébrant des occasions mémorables avec nos nouveaux émetteurs. En plongeant dans les valeurs, la vision, la culture, la personnalité et la philosophie de chaque organisation, nos artistes mandatés incorporent ces inspirations dans les œuvres d'art uniques qu'ils créent, qui sont ensuite présentées à nos nouvelles partenaires au lancement.
