Arts and Society invites artists and creative project leaders, working individually or as collectives to present your motivations, your objectives and how your work has an impact in society.
The original open call for artists was launched in connection with the 2017 World Humanities Conference.
Videos were received from all around the world, from artists working in the disciplines of visual arts, photography, film, music, performance, creative writing, architecture, culinary arts, crafts, and more, with social challenges including ecology, discrimination, urbanism, migration, cultural memory, coexistence, education, economics and politics.
Projects can be browsed on Artists and projects and on the interactive map.
The Arts and Society platform continues to present these projects and invites artists to join this global movement, demonstrating how arts, culture and creative impact society.
