About ARCASACRA

ARCASACRA | creative sense

Definition

ARCASACRA LLP is an Ethical Company with the legal form of a Limited Liability Partnership registered in Scotland (United Kingdom). Our aim is to promote and spread creativity and art on a global level, across all different cultures, societies and countries. This will be mainly possible thanks to ETHICARTS, our Ethical Marketplace for Creatives Industries (freelancers, start-ups or consolidated SMEs and big companies) and our Comunidad (Spanish for “community”) which will provide whatever you could need creative wise (forums, legal and financial advise, marketing and accounting tools, training resources, union information, etc).

ARCASACRA is a two-way business model: It is both a platform for Creative Industries freelancers and companies to contact and collaborate with each other (Business to Business, B2B) and for their potential customers to help them find the right product or service for their needs (Business to Costumer, B2C).

ARCASACRA cares about the local businesses, creative freelancers and its close-by customers, as we aim to create a human economy that brings wealth and development to its communities in a sustainable way. We are closely involved with the local communities as we take our social commitment very seriously. We consider companies should pay back to the community which allowed them to happen, that’s why we will invest in social and cultural projects for communities through ARCASACRA | org, arriving soon!

Our mission & approach

We want to use creativity to create the change we want to see in the world. The Creative Industries and the Arts have an enormous impact in every countries economy (in 2018 they contributed with £111.7 billion to the UK economy, as exposed in this article) and they are perfectly capable of starting an economical revolution towards a system that puts Humanity before money. We want to create the best global community for Creators and Collectors: a fair, ethical milieu that will allow them to connect, interact and collaborate following the principles of Coopetition, a synergy that promotes cooperation instead of competition.

Our Values

Community

The core of ARCASACRA is its trustable and friendly Community. Humans are social and interdependent beings. Today more than ever in History, and despite our wide diversity, all humans are deeply connected. What some countries or communities do affects the rest in more and more direct and explicit ways. Our impact when we act as a community can be of extraordinary reach and influence, because when people trust, respect and associate respectfully they generate a teamwork capable of creating powerful unions and organisations. They help and look after each other promoting change in laws, governments and market behaviour. We believe in an ethical, sustainable, selfless and inclusive Community, with a social responsibility about the environment, empathy for each other and integrity regarding ourselves. We believe in Coopetition (a cooperative competition).

Creativity

Creativity is the mindful gear of Humanity. All the progress, innovation, technology and social changes comes as result of the creative process. Culture bonds people together even despite their idiosyncratic differences. Without Ingenuity, humanity can not thrive, move forward as species and as a part of a living world. Through our dedication and discipline we accomplish the efficiency of our duties as creators and deliver with quality the results of our curiosity, self motivation and continuous learning that the Creative Path requires from us.

Change

We need Change as we need to Change. Change is movement and movement is life. We are on a critical point in human History where we have to empower ourselves, find the courage to grow personally and professionally and rethink our position in the World if we are to have a genuine and meaningful impact on it. This implies leaving behind the consumerism economy, which is destroying the same planet that allows us to exist. For this, we must reorganize our system and think, act and live differently. Change requires to be brave enough to enact our independence from a wrong economic system and its obsolete values in order to build a fairer, more humane system based on real Social Justice and Sustainability.

Let’s be the change we want to see in the World!

Nurture

ARCASACRA firmly believes that the most important and valuable asset of the company are the Creators and Collectors.
