All significant movements for positive change are accompanied by outpourings of artistic expression that help open our eyes to injustice and convey powerful new visions and possibilities. The relationship between art and social change is symbiotic.
Considering this key role of art as activism, Bioneers has sought to feature the work of groundbreaking socially and eco-engaged artists from across different disciplines. It is our belief that without the inspiration and visions artists provide, we won’t be able to give birth to the life affirming and just civilization we aspire to.
