The [ESCAPE] exhibition and educational project aims to call attention to the need for urgent political, economic and social transformation regarding urban sustainability. Protecting the environment and changing cultural behaviours requires creativity, hope and many positive minded people. We believe that cities and citizens can help to provide the solutions to the challenges we are facing, by changing laws, values and beliefs that have environmental and social implications, in order to create a more sustainable future.
The objective of this program is to encourage the development of experimental and holistic projects by connecting the artistic with the politics of art, belief with activism, heart with mind, along with a creative and multi-disciplinary team comprising photography and other artistic, social and environmental studies. This is the beginning of an open-ended project based in collaborative work, sharing experiences and visions with multiple meanings which contribute to the process of creating a social solidarity movement to essentially reduce this humanitarian and environmental crisis.
