the mission

Arts Twenty Thirty advocates for the use of artists’ creativity to communicate the SDGs and inspire global       audiences to take action towards a more sustainable future.


 The Aim

 Arts Twenty Thirty enables dialogue and collaboration among artists using the most profound form of human      expression: the arts. The project provides a global platform for artists to connect, share ideas and build original  projects for sustainable development and the SDGs. Its results - arts events facilitated globally at major           conferences, universities and schools will, inspire greater connection between individuals and communities.


the  Objectives

  • Mobilize young people from around the world to create artistic projects that raise awareness of the SDGs. 
  • Build a global network of artists that co-create and inspire social change through art.


 The Solution

Through arts we can merge both the rational and emotional  understanding, inspiring positive action and           engagement with the 2030 Agenda at a more profound level. 

 Arts Twenty Thirty achieves that through:

  1. An online platform serving as a showcase of artists and their artworks related to sustainable development and a platform for creativity and experimentation through the interaction of artists from across the world. We will encourage diversity and inclusiveness both through the artwork selection process as well as through various international initiatives.

  2. Arts events at political, economic, scientific and cultural forums related to sustainable development. The works featured will be selected for their quality and ability to portray the challenges and solutions to achieve sustainability.

  3. Arts events at universities, art schools, primary and secondary schools, where we will inspire a youth to take action on SDGs and make a positive change in communities.
