The A(rt)ction project can be seen as a challenge-born solution towards contributing to a more sustainable future.
We capitalize on the influential power of arts and green entrepreneurship to raise awareness about environmental issues and foster positive behavioral change.
A(rt)ction stands for Art and Action.
The A(rt)ction Project aspires to make young artists fight climate change via entrepreneurial ways, as the new green actors of change.
The environmental challenge posed by climate change may involve dire consequences for the lives of many living species on our planet. It is now well understood that we need a sustainable future, and for that, we also need a society-wide shift in our environmental attitudes. To effect such a radical shift, building awareness around climate change among all social groups and communities must happen as a collaborative, multidisciplinary effort.
The combination of the need to fight climate change, together with the artists’ need to belong to a bigger community and be trained on how to trigger environmental change is what makes the essence of A(rt)ction.
With the A(rt)ction project, we aim to put visual artists at the heart of the environmental movement and strengthen their role in raising awareness on climate change and encouraging sustainable social, economic, and environmental practices worldwide.
