The non-profit organisation Art of Change 21 connects contemporary art and major environmental issues and highlights the role of artists and creativity in the ecological transition.
It has various modes of action: exhibitions, an art prize, debates, performances, participatory workshops, tools, newsletters, projects co-designed with artists…
Since its creation in 2014 just ahead of the COP21 in Paris, Art of Change 21 has played a key role during COP Climate (Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change).
Based in Paris and sponsored by Olafur Eliasson and Tristan Lecomte, Art of Change 21 is founded and chaired by Alice Audouin, who is a leading authority since 2004 in the link between art and the environment.
The organisation is supported by its main partner, Schneider Electric Foundation, its institutional partners, the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and the French Office for Biodiversity, and its patron Maison Ruinart.
