“Alone we can do little, together we can do so much” Helen Keller

The Arid Lands Environment Centre (ALEC) and Watch This Space (WTS) are joining forces for the second year to present a collaborative exhibition for World Environment Day 2018.

You are invited to create and donate an artwork that explores climate change solutions and the power of collective action.

We know that doom and gloom stories don’t motivate people to act. Artists are invited to contribute works that reflect the wonder of our environment, the strength of our communities and the work of millions of people across the planet working to create change.

We are seeking art pieces that inspire hope and remind people of the power in taking action. Think suns, solar energy, energy efficiency, tree planting, biodiversity conservation, community, gardening, cycling, taking a stand, speaking up, volunteering, donating, connecting to nature, love, courage, resilience, working together – we want to be inspired and for our community to be inspired!

In the spirit of reducing our ecological footprint all artworks, visual or sculptural, are to be no bigger than an A2 sheet of paper and under the price of $500. Artists are asked to donate 50-100% of the selling price to ALEC & WTS.

Spoken word and musical contributions are welcomed for the exhibition opening.

There is application form attached or go to https://www.wts.org.au/better-together Application forms due Monday 14th May.

The Arid Lands Environment Centre and Watch This Space are valued long-standing local community organisations. All proceeds from sales of artworks will be split to support the work of both organisations.
