“We need a big movement,
and big movements come from beauty and meaning,
not columns of statistics.” -Bill McKibben
Dear Artists and Allies,
During my 11 years as a climate activist, I have seen hundreds of artworks about climate change and environmental degradation. I have enjoyed illustrations, designs, logos, as well as more subtle Fine Art that this subject has inspired. Unfortunately, many of these works have not received as much attention as they deserve. We hope to give a platform for artists dealing with issues of sustainability, help open up a greater dialog about this crisis and give ammunition to activists.
Please let me know how we can better support art and artists to become a more effective resource for the world community.
