ABOUT US

Creative People in Florence is a Cultural Association made up of a vibrant international community of artists, designers, artisans, and creative thinkers.  The group was founded to foster collaboration, promote our members’ projects, and activate the contemporary arts in Florence.

As working artists, founders Sara Amrhein and Anna Rose understand the importance of belonging to a creative community where we can share our ideas and strengthen our own practices as well as those of others.  Creative People in Florence hosts  a variety of events such as studio visits with artists, group shows, and networking opportunities to connect our members.

The strength  of CPiF lies in the diversity of its members: from artists and designers to writers, performing artists, and traditional artisans, we come not only from Florence, but from all over the world, thriving on the powerful potential of collaboration across different backgrounds and talents. Members bring their unique interests, skills, and perspectives to each project, resulting in meaningful, professional, and often unexpected results.

CPiF situates itself in Contemporary Florence, deeply enriched by its history, while focused on the dynamic present and future of the city. We are very excited about our continuing growth and are looking forward to the future. Thank you for your support!

Creative People in Florence was co-founded by American artists Sara Amrhein and Anna Rose who, after living in Florence for many years, recognized the need for a contemporary artists community. Both Sara and Anna are currently practicing, professional artists. Anna Rose works with photography, video, and costume. For more on her work, visit at www.annamrose.com.  Sara Amrhein is a jewelry artist specializing in sculptural polymer clay jewelry and objects, she has an atelier in Florence on Via dello Sprone 9/11r. You can see her work at www.sara-amrhein.com

Creative People in Florence è un’associazione culturale che nasce dalla collaborazione fra due artiste americane, Sara Amrhein ed Anna Rose, e una comunità internazionale di artisti, designers, artigiani e creativi, con lo scopo di incoraggiare la collaborazione, promuovere i progetti dei propri membri, e ravvivare le arti contemporanee a Firenze.

Come artiste, capiamo l’importanza di appartenere ad una comunità creativa dove possiamo condividere le nostre idee e rafforzare il lavoro nostro e quello degli altri. Ecco perché Creative People in Florence ospita una varietà di eventi, come gli Studio Visit e le mostre collettive, e altro, proprio per dare l’opportunità ai membri di conoscersi e di fare networking.

La forza di CPiF quindi, sta nella diversità dei membri (come artisti, designers, scrittori, performers, e artigiani tradizionali e non, che vengono da ogni parte del mondo, non solo da Firenze), nutrita da un forte potenziale di collaborazione che si instaura fra i vari background e talenti. Gli associati, infatti, condividono i propri interessi, le tecniche e le prospettive per ogni progetto, arrivando a dei risultati importanti e spesso inaspettati.

CPiF si situa in una Firenze contemporanea, arricchita dal suo passato, ma concentrata sul presente e sul futuro in evoluzione. Siamo contentissime della crescita continua del gruppo e guardiamo con entusiasmo al futuro.

Vi ringraziamo per il vostro sostegno!
