Art can heal, art can save lives, and art can bring us together even while we are apart. It can be a compass to guide us through this storm.
In response to COVID-19, we have joined forces with Amplifier launching an emergency campaign with top art curators and public-health advisors from around the world.
For the next 3 weeks 60 artists will be awarded $1k each, with awards distributed on every continent.
Winners will also be displayed on W1Curates in the month of May.
We’re looking for two kinds of work: The first are public health and safety messages that can help flatten the curve through education. The second are symbols that help promote mental health, well-being, and social change work during these stressful times.
These symbols will stand long after the virus is gone as a testament to our resilience.
