Art for a Purpose unites global visual statements where the processes and ideas are as important, if not more, than the finished artwork. This exhibition is a platform where global multi-disciplinary artivists express social concerns and provoke conversations for action.

This exhibition’s open call to all multi-disciplinary artivists provides a platform to express social concerns and provoke conversations for action.

The mission of Artivism: The Power of Art for Social Transformation, an interdisciplinary, multi-institutional global collaboration, is to engage people in transforming society through the power of art. The vision of this initiative is to generate a movement with committed social artivists in response to historic global concerns. Artivism aims to generate community through multi-disciplinary teamwork for a more dignified and meaningful coexistence, however you define these terms.

The Artivism Multi Venue Exhibition Art for a Purpose at Adelphi University would like to thank Professor Pamela Koehler and Sarah Avery, Administrative Assistant Department of Sociology in assisting with the curating and installation of the exhibit.
