The experience of the artist Vojta Stolbenko

The audience watch the video in real time or buy ticket for offline events. They can comment on the performance and communicate with artists. 

The pandemic has affected a lot of professions. The restrictions impacted the artwork intensively, it was a right time to find a way how to allow the audience to watch their favorite artists online. The Siesta Cloud team has sympathy for artistic activities and communities, the Flowbaba project was created with enjoyment.

“There was not suitable marketplace generator where it would be possible to centralize live performances of us artists in one place and enable the ticket sales at the same time” talented artist and musician Vojta Stolbenko says.

“What I found the most sympathetic about the whole vision of the community portal is that it helps community websites where users directly support artists and projects of their choice. It is not like on social media, where the main goal is enrich the social network itself. It seems like the difference between commercial mall and farmer’s market. The farmer’s market may offer a range in smaller quantities than mall, but  it is in better quality and it is fair trade. As a professional artist, I know how important it is for the survival of an independent culture to help develop smaller, community-based projects and organizations that allow artists to create freely. I perceive community marketplaces like Flowbaba or Kultura Doma as a projects with a noble purpose that not only helps artists to earn a living out of what they are doing but also try to point out that social media like Facebook are not everything and that it is sometimes worth leaving the computer or television and going to the theater. It worth to start looking for and sharing culture elsewhere – somewhere where the culture does not only serve as a tool to enrich big corporations.” Vojta Stolbenko shares his experience.


Case Study: Festa del Fuoco: The Scattered Show

On June 14, 2020 the festival ‘Festa del Fuoco: The Scattered Show’ took place on the Flowbaba marketplace. The festival has been held since 2008, when it was established on the Italian island Stromboli with the stratovolcano of the same name.

The festival is mainly about meeting circus artists, dancers, musicians, but also for example for costume designers. For the first time since the festival was established, the show did not take place on the Italian island but online, from various places around the world and Flowbaba was there.

At the time of the pandemic, artists were out of work and now the Festa del Fuoco association lack funds from the cancelled festival. In the form of a contribution on the Flowbaba platform, the public had a change to contribute to the continuation of this traditional island festival and support artists who lost their way of livelihood due the pandemic.
