The Collective by Artivist Launch!
The challenges we face in this moment are some of the most critical in our history. In the face of social and economic inequality, climate change, and deep ideological division, the world needs to hear the voices of Artivists now more than ever. In our communities and scenes, we are seeing amazing artists rise to the challenge and offer their voices through the creation of powerful work. However, the media landscape has evolved to create barriers that stifle their potential; many Artivists are left without a stage on which to be seen. While they can display their art on existing social media platforms, their voices often get lost among the oversaturation of commercial content. This can make it almost impossible for communities of artists and activists to find each other. In the process, our larger community and culture loses the chance to grow with these artists’ important voices and visions of change.
The Collective will empower Artivists by giving them a platform to showcase and sell their work and providing tools to create effective socially conscious events and demonstrations.
