Our Mission:

The Art for Social Change Competition seeks to create space for and recognize the role of art in advancing social justice, as a process and a goal. We seek artistic submissions that provoke, challenge, and inspire.  

We hope that this program will call attention to the need to not only recognize the vast inequality that persists in the world today, but also recognize the necessity to build a new world –  to dream, to envision, to invent, to create –  redefining how we live and interact with our surroundings.
