About Change the World Art Competition
The competition was established by Poseytude Gallery in 2014 to encourage and promote art and artists in Oxfordshire and beyond whilst demonstrating how art can be a positive media for change. We utilise an online voting platform to promote the art, artist and the message and independent judges from the world of art to select the best that meet the competition criteria.
In these challenging times that we all live in, how would you make a positive or inspiring impression on the world through art?
We live in a changing and ever more challenging world. Our environment and resources are being depleted and nature with the elements of air, wind, fire and water is testing us. Our countryside is being reduced due to meet rising population and seaside being eroded due to rising sea levels and changing weather patterns. Economic inequality is rife and charities battle to cope with feeding and supporting the homeless, sick and insecure. Love and humanity exists, yet we battle over territory, resources often in the name of politics and religion even as people of the same planet. Greed and ignorance versus love and education. So, what would you tell our future selves to protect or change? What would you want to remind people of the beauty of our planet? Tell us through your art medium and briefly in your words how we can use or be inspired by it to make a change."
