Short Description

The open source solution to exhibit and organise art and research. Developed in partnership with artists and scientists, Portfolio is a one-stop shop to organise and store all your ideas, ongoing projects, and completed work in one place. With Showroom you tell the story of your work, collaborate with colleagues and explore and discover the work of others. Make your Portfolio entries public in Showroom – both apps complement each other.
