People have told us that this is the coolest #opendata project in the world.

And we like to think so too. But for us, this is really a tiny side project that we cannot afford to dedicate a lot of time to and without support, it's just not going to survive.

We made Art Crawl in June 2014, pushed it live and watched the love trickle in; we didn't expect people to react so positively to the project so we kept going. And since then, we've already put far more effort and time into this than we ever dreamed we would, all purely on a voluntary basis because we think it's a cool idea. And so far, everyone else who has come across it and/or has participated feel the same way too.



Get your city its own Art Crawl community!

At the moment, we've only got Leeds, UK covered and this hasn't stopped art lovers from other cities from joining in (Hey guys!!) but we would love to accommodate all the cities on their own deserved page. In fact, this was something that people kept probing us to do but talks with potential sponsors all fell through so we're going to do this the Patreon way.

What is it? Well, simply put - we display and curate tweeted photos of public art / art in public under an official hashtag, on a website with geolocation as a focus so we know where these artworks are.

- Everyone gets a profile, a personal map and a gallery of their tweeted photos.
- We have a growing map of all the public art that art lovers have posted on Twitter using the hashtag. This map is embeddable for everyone!
- We have a gallery of all the public art ever tweeted on one page. It's beautiful and big, prepare to scroll down loads!
- We have a stats page about the data that we get from your tweets. Apparently, people find art mostly after work (5pm)!
- We have a JSON feed for the data so it's always updated to the latest date.

But more importantly, it's also about Data Awareness.

Everything you do on the internet creates data. Every tweet, every like, every Facebook post. And it's all mostly publicly available to everyone. And you're accountable for it. You put a piece of yourself out there every time you engage on the internet and this is a rarely discussed subject.

With Art Crawl, you take control of your own data and ultimately, your gallery.

Each time you tweet with the hashtag, you're giving us permission to list your photo in the gallery and if you have location sharing turned on, you're giving us permission to post the location of that photo on a map. If you delete the tweet, the photo & location are deleted from the website.

We've got a tonne of ideas that we want to add to the site so we can highlight our awesome art lovers, tagging and grouping for all the art posted on the site, more options for your profile, leaderboards, badges, blog posts, better map interactions, better hashtag identification, a multi-platform app and these are just a few in a list of many.

With your support, we can make a better Art Crawl experience. Help us?

Want to join in right now? Tweet us a photo of art with #ArtCrawl and make sure location sharing is turned on if you want it on a map!

You get to sponsor a new location to display in the gallery; for example, #Dublin  #ArtCrawl. We'll also pick up photos with location shared so you can just tweet using #ArtCrawl.

This means you'll get your own URL (eg, http://dublin.artcrawl.club), gallery of photos tweeted with your chosen hashtag, your own map, profiles for every user, data feed and statistics page!

The money goes into hosting, development of the site, bug fixes and moderation of photos (you wouldn't believe the amount of spam that goes through Twitter!).

You will also have the option of being listed on our dedicated supporters page, access to backer-only updates, including special previews of features or any progress developments before they are revealed to the public. (Please inform us if you require this option!)

Searches are limited by the Twitter API.
