Omcuom Books&Coffee wants to be a place that respects the art and coffee culture. We want to create a specialty coffee shop that will sell books and art creations.
We plan to host events every weekend, where we promote our artists (djs, musicians, poets) and mostly the books. We need your help to invest in a social cultural alternative business, with wich we can sustain the community. From local up to the worldwide (through our website). We are looking for a format that can be sustainable and responsible no matter the cultural and economic conditions.
We want to sustain the publishing houses. Reading actual knowledge brings us togheter.
Roxana-Emilia Luca is a photographer, graphic designer and curator. She is active in the cultural scene of both her hometown, Alba Iulia and Cluj from Romania, where she studies art management. She is the owner of Omcuom Design company that inspired her to start this project. She is member of cultural collectives such as the NGO Creative Hood Carolina (CCC) and Museikon Museum of sacred Art.
Melissa-Andreea Nyulas is a textile artist and she is involved in artistic projects and is member of several art and music collectives from the city Cluj-Napoca where she studies textile art. She is owner of Dot with Dots hand-made brand. One of the cultural groups she is the most active into is Să Fiți Cuminți Gallery, AstronautKru Soundsystem and Genmaica Soundsystem. She is currently working at an art gallery from Barcelona, for a limited amount of time.
Why is this important?
In a more actual sense, a lot of art and cultural collectives were shut down, due to the pandemic. We want to offer to our community a sense of responsible and creative activity, a shelter of inspiration. Coffee Culture needs our support!
Some of us make very good art, others play carefully chosen and studied music, some are creating garments and ceramics as unique pieces. There are people in our communities who create natural perfumes in compostable recipients, silver rings of the most intriguing shapes and curves, innovative design garments, bags and paintings of striking colors and scintillating concepts. They need to be exposed not just at festivals, fairs or dedicated events, but in a more consistent and also affordable way!
What will your contribution support?
With your help we will find a place in the city of Cluj, Romania, where we can create the shop and give life to the community.
We will create a website to provide the worldwide community with unique, alternative creations and careful to environment creations.
We will invite you further to our curated events with book releases and local dj artists, musicians, poets, theatre and many others.
We will sustain the publishing houses, the art community and the coffee culture!
