PANDORA ART EDUCATION COURSES
BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT FOR COMMERCIAL ART COMPANIES
Our strategy and development programme for established businesses or start-ups focuses on the creative sector. We support the sales management process and help in developing partnerships and creating market exposure. Whilst offering arts organisations the opportunity to outsource part of their sales management cost effectively, our clients particularly benefit from the strategic partnerships and collaborations we are able to make for them.

ART AUTHENTICATION AND DUE DILIGENCE
We are members of The Art Due Diligence Group (ADDG), a joined up expert due diligence service for clients wanting to know the steps that should be undertaken prior to a high value art sale taking place or before any artwork is taken to market.
This is a user-friendly and helpful system for examining artworks and obtaining the necessary professional opinions that should be sought when dealing with a high value artwork or a collection of artworks. Comprised of a specially selected team of experts with years of experience in the art market, the ADDG realised the need to combine its collective expertise because of the situations encountered in today’s art market. As the price of art has risen sharply, regulation has become tighter, the process has become complex, new markets have emerged, a new breed of collector has entered the market and the stakes are now high meaning that there is much to lose through lack of compliance, knowledge and process.
Pandora also offers a masterclass in Art Due Diligence. A level 4 component of the programme. This is a one to one private session designed to share the pitfalls and best practice in buying and selling high value decorative artefacts, paintings and sculpture.
