Develop our App for 4 months of free studio space at Con Artist NYC

The Con Artist Collective is a shared workspace and gallery in the heart of the Lower East Side. We are an active community of creatives, curating group shows & social events, encouraging collaboration & inspiring imagination. In early 2010 we started providing a place for emerging artists to create and prosper. Membership means joining our community of 150+ proactive and like-minded creatives.

We are looking for an App developer to create a functional mobile/web app for our collective. The main functions are creating a forum for our members to communicate, have access to a shared calendar and the ability to create events, and be able to update a personal profile page. We need a basic functioning beta version of this app developed and in exchange we are offering 4 months of unlimited access to the workspace which includes:

• Free wifi (T3 Connection)

• Computers with Adobe Suite+Final Cut

• Work tables (Varied set-ups)

• Personal equipment and art storage

• Active arts community

• Gallery+ Event space

• 4 color silk screen press

• Light table

• Photo studio

• Professional lighting

• Easels

• Drop sink with power washer

• Woodshop + Power tools


Ideally, the features of the app would allow members to:

• Create a personal profile, and share your ideas and creativity with the rest of the collective

• Replacing the Google Group with a forum where all kinds of posts and topics can be shared

• The ability to subscribe or unsubscribe to a specific thread and control the posts you want to be alerted about

• The ability to "tag" members of the collective in forum posts

• Create public or private group discussions with selected members

• Follow important and interesting Con Artist Collective updates through the news tab

• Replacing the Google Calendar with our own shared and user updated calendar

Respond through email if you are interested in this work-exchange opportunity with a list of skills or examples of web design work. This opportunity is ideal for entry-level developers and creatives who need use of a communal workspace in downtown Manhattan.
