Empowering Change Through Creativity: Unveiling Creatives Auctions’ “African Art for Change” Initiative

Aug 30, 2023

Unlocking Africa’s Creative Potential

Did you know that Africa contributes less than 1% to the global creative economy, valued at a jaw-dropping $4.2 trillion?

That’s like having a treasure chest of creativity waiting to be discovered!

But here’s the kicker – countless young African artists with the potential to transform society through their art often find themselves stuck in unfulfilling 9-to-5 jobs because selling their masterpieces is, well, quite challenging.

But we’ve got a fresh perspective.

We believe African art can take center stage in society, making a profound impact, and becoming a household name.

How? By getting creative, of course!

That’s why we’re launching our “African Art for Change” initiative – a quarterly effort that combines the power of art by African artists and activism.

Art That Sparks Change

Our mission is clear: we want to raise awareness, start conversations, educate, and drive positive societal change through the power of art by African artists.

Through this initiative, we will be addressing pressing issues like mental health, climate change, girl-child education, political corruption, social inequality, and more.

But here’s the twist – we’re not stopping at just conversation. We’re putting our money where our art is!

Every quarter, we’re committing to donate a generous 5% of our earnings to a relevant non-profit organization. It’s art with a heart!

African Culture Depicted Through Art

A Passionate Start with Mental Health Awareness

For far too long, the pursuit of a career as a visual artist in Africa has been met with skepticism. But we’re flipping the script. We believe that art is a force for good, capable of driving deep conversations and societal change. It shouldn’t be a privilege reserved for the elite; it should be accessible to all.

Our six-fold impact goal speaks volumes:

  1. Positive Societal Impact: We’re not just talking the talk; we’re walking the walk with campaigns that drive real change.
  2. A Platform for Artists: We’re putting African art in homes worldwide, fast-tracking careers, and ensuring artists earn sustainably.
  3. Affordable Art: We’re making art accessible to everyone through our affordable price point.
  4. Empowering Future Artists: We’re paving the way for the next generation of visual artists.
  5. Giving Back: We’re donating 5% of net profits to various social causes and organizations.

In essence, we’re redefining what it means to be a visual artist from Africa – it’s not just a dream; it’s a viable career path.

Join us on this incredible journey of art, change, and creativity. Together, we can unlock the potential of African art, ensuring it thrives for generations to come.
