Media and Entertainment Skills Council (MESC), a non-profit skill building organization under the aegis of Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) has entered into a strategic partnership with Artistize, a global talent aggregation cum networking platform to help enable each other to provide skill development options and to create access to economic opportunities for art-entertainment-media industry.
The tie-up will enable MESC to use Artistize as the technology platform to empower the art- entertainment-media industry in developing requisite resources, identifying talent, provide job opportunities, freelance assignments, work projects and workshops, eventually to create as well as provide access to relevant economic opportunities for professionals from this industry.
The fact that this industry is highly unorganized in terms of talent identification and their placement, there is a dire need of an organized system to disrupt the current situation. And since this industry is growing at a phenomenal rate, the challenges it faces to fulfil the demand-supply gap of quality workforce is also increasing. The solution to both these needs is presented in the form of a joint attempt of Artistize and MESC, where they both will strategically utilize each other’s resources. Artistize with its ready high-end technology and a very large user-base of artists and artistes spanning over 165 countries will help compliment the MESC’s reach within this Industry.
Sharing the common vision of creating a new ecosystem to provide opportunities to artists and artistes globally along with fulfilling the requirements of the industry, both MESC and Artistize will help each other create and fulfil the purpose.
Speaking on the association, Deepa Chawrai, co-founder of Artistize said “As an artist driven company, Artistize understands the specific needs of this industry, and we are proud to partner with MESC to help foster our existing mission of providing economic opportunities and skill-development options to the current and potential workforce of this industry. Institutes, agencies, production houses and private entities from art, entertainment and media sectors are a very important resource for Artistize and MESC will play a key role in our aspiration to help artists harness the power of their skill-sets to build a professionally successful career for themselves.”
The tie-up between MESC and Artistize is effective immediately.
In this world of internet and technology, there isn’t an effective way to provide visibility & exposure and networking abilities to artists and artistes AND there isn’t a common global artists’ directory for the seekers, like what LinkedIn offers to professionals in general.
Recognizing this global unmet need and with an intention to provide access to economic opportunities to the deserving artists, Founders started Artistize - a global network of artists, artistes, seekers, employers, agencies, productions houses and experts from art and entertainment industry. Also, this provides a huge
business opportunity to Artistize to expand its wings in many directions starting from offering talent solutions to driving content, advertisement options, and so on.
Artistize brings together artists, artistes, creative professionals & their seekers globally on a single online networking platform, AND provides visibility & exposure to the artists and identification & evaluation tools to the seekers. Some also call it as “LinkedIn of Art-Media-Entertainment”.
