Art & Music Projects

We find up-and-coming & established artists from around the world of various mediums; visual art, music, fashion – who produce socially conscious work aligned with our values, and offer funding and support to them in order to produce and distribute select works globally.

Our artists create works that mean something. They draw attention to;

  • Feminism
  • Equality
  • Inclusion
  • Abuse of power
  • Violence
  • Effects of poverty
  • Wellness
  • And other powerful subjects, both mainstream and taboo.
