|[Nettime-nl] Iraanse schilder gezocht!|
ter info grts. rini hartman Beste vrienden, Voor een groepsexpositie in Platvorm De Levante zijn wij nog op zoek naar 1 Iraanse schilder (m/v) uit NL of een van de omringende landen. Ons thema is 'Kleur uit Iran' dus we zoeken kleurrijke kunstwerken... Mochten jullie iemand uit je naaste omgeving kennen, zouden jullie dan hem/haar aan ons willen voorstellen? Het gaat om een expo in de periode 1 septmeber-15 oktober. Alvast veel dank! Hartelijke groeten, Sharie en Dalila http://www.delevante.org ART FOR SOCIAL CHANGE a belief in cultural, creative and integral expression as a means to affecting deep and lasting social change Art for Social Change is creative expression that emerges from artists to improve individual and collective circumstances. Art for Social Change involves an understanding of creation that includes not only objects, but also geographic locations, groups of people and collective consciousness. Social artists are concerned with the many ways art can function, like community development, the environment, education, intergenerational communication, healthcare, technology, politics, conflict resolution, community regeneration and cultural citizenship. They are working in all media, in all disciplines, in all locations. Social artists are committed to bringing the arts to bear on the widest possible range of social conditions and challenges facing our society. These efforts seek to create social change at every level of society, from personal to political. At the heart of this social vision is a belief in cultural and creative expression as a means to affecting deep and lasting social change. Art becomes a political act, a conscious effort to facilitate and participate in social change. Art for Social Change is an expression of both individual and group identity. All creative expression is an expression of both individual and group life. Instead of an isolated individual, the artist serves as a cultural catalyst of social intervention and transformation. Through art, we can challenge many of our society's deepest assumptions, such as the boundaries between self and other, 'artist' and 'non-artist', present and past, male and female, young and old, 'normal' and 'abnormal'. The social artist builds upon the power of artistic creation and expression to spark new ideas, catalyze critical thinking, elicit new actions, inspire individuals and create visions. If the majority of the people do not believe in the possibility and the rightness of their common cause, nothing long-lasting will be changed. This is where art and artists play an essential role. If we want freedom, we must promote free expression. If we want equity, we must have equal access and support in expressing ourselves. If we want respect, love and beauty among us and others, we must actively promote it through our art. http://www.artforsocialchange.net http://www.digicarefoundation.org http://www.chequedelarealidad.org
