Artists Response Fund / Healing Arts Auction


I was happy to donate an artwork and to participate in Healing Arts Auction, curated by Barbara Davis, to support The Future is Unwritten Artists Response Fund, established in 2020, under the auspices of the World Health Organization Art & Health Program to provide financial and production support to artist-led projects that contribute to improved physical, mental, and social health in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, CULTURUNNERS initiated The Future is Unwritten (TFIU) - a project to engage the international Arts and Culture sector in the accelerated implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The project was formally launched in 2020 by CULTURUNNERS and the World Council of Peoples for the United Nations (WCPUN) as part of the UN’s 75th Anniversary Programme. With leading UN agencies describing the recent pandemic as nature’s first ‘warning shot’ to civilizations playing with fire, TFIU is a cultural call-to-action in response to the challenges the next decade will bring.
