Fostering Empowerment and Social Justice through Self-Expression and Gender Equity.

As part of its three-year partnership with Artolution, Gucci and CHIME FOR CHANGE will be utilizing interactive arts projects to promote reconciliation, healing and inclusion among women, children and families from socially excluded and displaced communities.

Collaborative projects to inspire social change include:

  • To mark World Refugee Day on June 20, 2018, Gucci dedicated its global ArtWalls to Artolution to replicate community art work created around the world, sharing the determination and spirit of the women, children and families helped by its programs.
  • At the 2018 Global Citizen Festival in New York City, Gucci, CHIME FOR CHANGE and Artolution joined with Action in Africa and Tools & Tiaras to create a mural with a message of gender equality, featuring collaborations from Global Citizen Festival attendees. The mural will travel to Uganda with Action in Africa, where it will inspire, empower and uplift the community.
