About Artolution

Artolution empowers communities through collaborative public art-making initiatives that engage communities in creative experiences to promote healing, resilience and positive social change.

Artolution is founded in participatory and collaborative art making. Their process empowers artists, young people and communities to be agents of positive social change, to explore critical societal issues and create opportunities for constructive dialogue.

They believe that through the process of creating collaborative art, diverse communities can come together in times of conflict and social turmoil to address the challenges they face together. Artolution projects engage youth and communities that have faced social exclusion and trauma, including refugees, street youth, the incarcerated, people with physical and mental disabilities, and young people living in areas of violent conflict or extreme poverty. These projects have been organized and facilitated in partnership with local artists, grass-roots community groups, schools and international institutions in 30 countries across Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, North America, Europe, Australasia and South Asia.

They utilize visual public art mediums such as mural art and community sculpture, as well as performance genres like dance, theatre and music. In their workshops, participants address various community issues and collectively decide on the subject and content, culminating in the collaborative creation of works of public art. Through this process, they emphasize the building of positive relationships among participants, communicative skill-building, the sharing of knowledge and the encouragement of community activism.
