Art of Change 21 is happy to officially announce the launch of maskbook.org: a gallery of masked portraits in three languages (French, English and Chinese) that already includes more than 200 participants from all over the world!
Maskbook is the first international and creative action on the link between health and climate, launched by Art of Change 21 for COP21 (The UN Conference on Climate Change, Paris, December2015), supported by the artist Olafur Eliasson and the social entrepreneur Tristan Lecomte.
Whether masks are made with depolluting plants, plastic, electronic waste, with a 3D printer or original objects, the masks come together but are all unique! Diversity of materials but also themes are celebrated: concerns such as ice melt, waste management or biodiversity.
Citizens, artists, designers, makers, ecologists, children, senior citizens, celebrities and are all part of the adventure. Everyone is invited to take action.
Be part of this amazing masked journey.
