The Earth Issue is a collective of artists and creative professionals working at the intersection of fine art and environmentalism.
In common, we share a dedication to raising awareness for the beauty of nature, using art and image culture as a driving force for environmental activism. The collaborators of The Earth Issue aim to highlight a growing interest amongst young artists to awaken society’s complacent consciousness towards our planet; to inspire and harness the power of social change.
To provide a platform - through publications, exhibitions, educational talks, and other collaborative projects - for creative thinkers, and aspiring and established visual artists who seek to raise awareness about our environment.
To challenge our need to engage in the infinite dialogues occurring around climate change, and the need to understand our role as a part of Nature.
To bring art to the forefront of climate change discussion. At The Earth Issue, we believe that creativity is one of the most powerful tools to effect social change.
We want to enable artists who are passionate about nature to unleash their creativity onto the world and stand up for the preservation of our planet.
