WHAT WE DO

We work with mid-careers conceptual artists who explore social justice related topics. They surface the world’s economic and social challenges through their insightful research and concepts.

Our contribution:


  • Residencies and exhibitions: we invite the artists to think, create or collaborate on projects.

  • Community and education programs: we make art accessible and we inspire younger generations to learn and engage.

  • Partnerships with socially engaged businesses: we develop unique opportunities for making impact.


We are launching in 2020 with a residency and a survey exhibition. Our work is designed around the needs of individual artists, with the main aim to provide them with due exposure and scholarship. Our strategy and our projects are aligned with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
