Our-Topia: Artists Create the Future
What does the “good life” mean to you?
Face it, things are bleak. The climate crisis, police brutality, gun violence, inequality, blatant racism, authoritarian populism threatening our democracy…the list just seems to go on and on. It’s difficult not to feel discouraged and fearful. Outrage and fear are courted by the media and amplified in the echo chambers of social media.
Humanity badly needs a path forward at this juncture. Artists have the creative chops, and with it a sacred responsibility to envision a different future. Just imagine if our media, film, literature and art offered blueprints for hopeful and bright futures. Instead of reinforcing immobilizing fear, they could inspire positive action.
This site is a collection of visual art and information to open your perception of what a positive future can look like.
Artists Karin Bolstad and Jane Richlovsky conceived of the theme for this show to be displayed at the Good Arts Building in Seattle, WA. Karin decided they needed a venue with a larger audience, as well as more contributing artists.... so VOILA! Our-topia.com.
