The Artists for a Better World (ABW) programme seeks to grow the Arts for Good ecosystem, which harnesses the power of the arts and culture to create positive social change. This year’s inaugural edition brought together 29 participants from 13 nationalities across sectors, including artists, arts administrators and programmers from social welfare organisations, to explore how the arts can create positive social change for people with disabilities.
Over the four-day study visit, participants explored the capacity and skills needed to create an arts programme for social impact, as well as connect with an international ecosystem of individuals from various sectors who are keen on harnessing the arts for social change.
This project is part of the SIF’s Arts for Good initiative, which seeks to promote awareness of social issues, share best practices and enable action for positive social impact through the arts.
