On this New Year’s Day we are launching Vital Space — an NGO and website that intends to cast an artistic eye on the great issues of our troubled age.
Instead of another empty New Year’s resolution, we decided to take the initiative of creating a platform from which we can all (you, us, kindred spirits from near and afar) launch ideas and projects.
Please visit www.vitalspace.org, take a look around (e.g. the ART PROJECTS, AWARENESS, TEXTS sections) and, if suitably inspired, please send us your own text, photographs, videos, art project suggestions etc. First click on SUBMISSIONS for guidelines before sending us your ideas.
Alternatively, you may just leave a comment, note or message at our FORUM. We would love to hear from you in one way or another.
Above all else, with wishes that 2011 proves better than anticipated,
Happy New Year
Yanis Varoufakis and Danae Stratou
Danae Stratou is a visual artist, and Yanis Varoufakis is an economist, in Athens, Greece.
