Why ArtsEverywhere?

Explore the Fault Lines of Society

ArtsEverywhere is a platform for artistic experimentation and exploration of the fault lines of modern society. It creates open spaces for dialogue about the value that the arts bring to all aspects of our communities and societies—not only from the points of view of artists, cultural workers, and arts institutions, but also globally from the perspectives of policy makers, ecologists, children, city builders, social justice leaders, farmers, educators, and activists.

The Arts Are Vital

ArtsEverywhere believes that the arts must be a central component of individual and collective experiences of the world and a vital part of all social and political processes, including governance, justice, activism, economies, and education. The lines of inquiry that form the backbone of the online platform and the festival include New Pedagogies & Alternative Learning, Decolonization and New Colonialisms, Economic Dignity, Feminisms and Queerness, Language and Migration, and Artist Rights.
