YARAT contemporary art organization and BEHANCE, the leading online platform for showcasing and discovering creative work, held Portfolio Review Day in Baku on November 8, 2014.
Behance is a network of sites and services specializing in self-promotion, including consulting and online portfolios. It offers creative individuals an opportunity to update their work in one place and to broadcast it widely and efficiently on an international scale.
Behance seeks to remove the barriers between talent and opportunity as it helps to distribute work to different online galleries, maximizing exposure and attracting millions of visitors.
Members use Behance to showcase their work from start to finish, get proper credit online, and connect with peers, career opportunities, and industry leaders.
Twice annually, Behance presents Portfolio Review Week, an unprecedented series of volunteer-organized events that has spread to hundreds of cities internationally, with the goal of bringing together creative professionals.
Since Portfolio Review Week launched in 2012, nearly 1,000 events in eighty countries have taken place around the globe - all run by our community leaders.
YARAT Contemporary Art Organization has always supported this kind of initiatives and is partnering this year with Behance to hold an Portfolio Review Day that brought together the following creative people from Azerbaijan: Liza Hasanova, Ramil Aliyev, Javid Guliyev, Majid Aliyev, Samir Salakhov, Subhan Manafzade, Urfan Mammadov, Kenan Nasibov, Aygun Hesenova, Emin Azizbeyli and Chingiz Ismailov.
