Artists for a Better World

Introducing "Artists for a Better World", our latest programme under the Arts for Good initiative! Rooted in our belief that arts and culture has the power to create positive social change, the programme seeks to grow an eco-system of people who share the same passion of making the world a better place through the arts. If you are an emerging artist, arts administrator or working in the social sector with an interest in arts for good, we want you! Find out more and join us here. Applications close 11 August 2017.
