Inspired by the incredible craftivism of the #JusticeforLB campaign, we’re asking people to get creative. Art For Gaia will bring together contributions from artists, survivors and members of the public in memory of Gaia and to highlight pressing social justice issues around sexual violence, mental health and inequality.
Make something beautiful for Gaia.
Gaia was an artist, so the #ArtForGaia project seemed like the perfect way to honour her. We’ve received some spectacular submissions and every one is treasured so whether you so whether you’re remembering Gaia or expressing your own experiences with mental health, sexual violence or gender inequality, and whether collage, carve or crochet, write, film, draw or make sculptures out of baby bell skins – and whether you do it well or badly (because it really is the thought that counts) – send something in.
Want to book a participatory Art for Gaia workshop for your student society, place of worship or community group? Email us at email@example.com to find out more.
Art for Gaia is one way our campaign seeks to raise awareness and create a space where people can be heard, the way Gaia deserved to be heard.
Need some ideas to get you started? Visit our facebook album to see some of the photo submissions we’ve had so far – and here are some images that make us think of her: robins, rainbows, dragonflies, butterflies, deer, trees and anything that says ‘sisterhood’.
Send photos of your project in to firstname.lastname@example.org or share them on twitter with the hashtag #ArtForGaia
