ART WORKS FOR CHANGE

Art Works For Change

Art Works for Change is a nonprofit organization that creates contemporary art exhibitions and storytelling projects to address critical social and environmental issues.

Our travelling museum exhibitions enrich local communities, and our unique online projects provoke dialogue and inspire action. We recently launched a new storytelling project that will help people visualize the impact of global warming and the pathways to solving the climate crisis. As part of this project, we are creating a series of interactive experiences to promote action on climate change. These experiences include climate-themed games and interactive stories, which we will roll out in partnership with grassroots environmental organizations.

Your role would be to organize and lead a virtual event to inspire and activate members of your community. Your event would feature a creative storytelling experience and speakers from grassroots organizations. Plus, you will get to join a fun, passionate team, working for an important cause--and build your own skills and network in the process. Remote volunteers are happily accepted.

We get a lot done for a small organization! Learn more about us in this New York Times feature: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/13/arts/design/museums-inspire-social-activism-politics.html?_r=0
