Creative Voices unite through Stories Made In Art and ARTicles
We all have stories to tell. Art is a great way to share them.
'Stories Made in Art' will put forward people's perspectives through art. It will also be branching out soon in schools and hospitals, showcasing the power of art.
We all have a voice, an opinion, an angle on a subject. ARTicles will put forward peoples's voices on creative but also on any given subjects. Fusing all disciplines and questioning issues and notions.
Coffee Talk, questions and reports on talk events, culture, philosophy, technology, art and the influences of and on society and politics.
It is an arena to archive topics, for one to dip into, contemplate, question, think about throughout the day, or talk about with friends and colleagues, with or without a coffee!

Through the lens of art, the themes that will be explored throughout the series are: soft power, freedom of expression, street art, gender, identity, conflict, peace building, and many more.
