We organised the first ever Zealous X Festival showcasing 100 artists from 5 different fields, curated on the Zealous platform. Around 4000 people came to experience the gigs, performances and works within the space.
"Art does something to us. In a work environment, art can help break political barriers and cultural differences, it can give us perspective, create empathy and remind us who we are," says Krog. "Using art in the context of expressing what a business stands for, illustrating the core value and identity of a company with art creates a feeling of f togetherness in the workplace but lets clients know, in a visual way, the integrity of the company."
Zealous.co just launched this month, which is good news for all you creatives out there without any coding skills. Kind of like LinkedIn for artists or Dribbble for graphic artists, Zealous touts itself as “your cover page – your gateway into the creative world”.

We're excited to share our thoughts on how the creative industries are the corner stone to future economic development, and how Zealous aims to help with that.
