Since our launch in January 2017, we have led the way in participatory public art initiatives in Greater Western Sydney. Our effort to increase the visibility of the arts as a mechanism of positive change has seen us tackle complex and politically charged issues that we face as a global community. We have been at the forefront of the artivist movement in Australia and continue to deliver powerful art with purpose.
Our vision is to create public art with purpose, in Australia, and around the world. In particular to create works that address the social, political, cultural and environmental issues we face as a global community. In doing so, we hope to provide more opportunities for artivists to positively impact society, and to inspire and nurture the next generation of artivists.
Noun 1. harnessing the power of creativity to bring about political, cultural or social change. A marrying of art and activism.
