It’s been ten months since Covid-19 was first reported in late December 2019 and uncertainty is still our present and future reality.
“Today, more than anything, life needs hope,” says Yana Buhrer Tavanier, founder of Fine Acts, “Art has immense power, so we wanted to unleash it and help people during these difficult times.”
Hope is the word and driving force behind a fun, colorful and quirky art campaign called Spring of Hope. Over 50 artists and illustrators from around the world creatively expressed how they picture HOPE amid the chaos and lockdown we’re living in.
Hope is a longing and a dream, something we long for and dream about. It is the feeling that what is wanted can be had. It is something to look forward to with desire.
To one artist, hope is a porcupine hugging a cactus.
To another, hope is a woman putting flowers in a bomb… or artwork that boldly say ‘What doesn’t kill you makes you cooler’,
Fine Acts is a “playground for social change” with a mission to empower people in the nonprofit community and operate across issues and borders. Believing in the power of art and play to make people care and act, Fine Acts create novel avenues to empower activism by nurturing collaborations, producing powerful art, creating effective campaigns, boosting innovation, practicing playtivism and supporting organizations. Fine Acts published these works on an online platform, along with hundreds of others they’ve curated in the past on topics like women’s rights, LGBTQ rights, democracy and freedom of expression.
