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 are collaborating on interactive arts projects to promote reconciliation, healing and inclusion among women, children and families from socially excluded and displaced communities.

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 contributions from Global Citizen Festival attendees. The mural recently traveled to Uganda where it was used as a basis and inspiration for making a response mural to  engage the community in a creative experience to promote healing, resilience and positive social change. Watch Artolution, CHIME FOR CHANGE and Action in Africa collaborate together in Uganda below.

Additionally, 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.
