THE COMMUNITY OF COMMITTED ARTISTS AND CREATIVES!
THE BEGINNING OF THE COLLECTIF'ART ADVENTURE
Maltem is a web development company international. And like all companies of this scale, social commitment is important and all cultural initiatives are welcome. Six years ago, in September 2016, the Maltem Paris offices hosted the inauguration of the Aldinie Foundation.
It was during this event that Collectif'ART was conceived by two Maltémiens from the Lille agency, Elodie Swora & Alexandre Lawniczak. They wanted to support the Aldinie Foundation and promote the artistic talents of the group's employees. The idea of an innovative approach was born!
3 months later, at the end of 2016, the project became concrete! Collectif'ART, the community of committed artists and creatives of the Maltem group was born and the adventure could begin!
A vector of emancipation and cohesion, Collectif'ART offers an intimate and collective experience, a source of pride and freedom, and invites anyone who is curious to develop their creative and artistic potential, or to observe that of their neighbour.
Collectif'ART aims to bring together Maltem collaborators who have the ability to create imagination or who want to immerse themselves in the work we propose (photos, drawings, paintings, sculptures, digital illustrations, musical works, video works or any other creations). Just because we are a web development company does not mean that expression and art do not touch us.
COLLECTIF'ART TURNS MALTEM AGENCIES INTO ART GALLERIES!
The first Collectif'ART solidarity and art exhibition took place in April 2017 at the Lille agency.
With DJ Svora playing in the background, about fifty people were able to discover and acquire several photographic works created by Maltem collaborators.
The profits from our exhibitions were donated to the Aldinie Foundation.
The second exhibition took place in Neuilly-sur-Seine in November 2017. An XXL exhibition, 200 people were able to discover various artistic prints: photographs, drawings and paintings.
After Lille & Paris, Collectif'ART moved to the Belgian capital to present its works in May 2018. Maltem Brussels hosted some forty works in its premises, all of which were sold for the benefit of the Aldinie Foundation.
Finally, in October 2018, it was the Luxembourg agency that took on the appearance of an art gallery for an evening, hosting photographs, drawings, textiles & other creations by our Made in Maltem talents.
What Inspires Us
Whether it's a book, a place or even a song, inspiration can be found anywhere and in any form. The employees of the web development company Maltem took part in the "what inspires us" game. Elodie, Léa & Alexandre share everything that fuels their creative process.
