SAMEE in collaboration with IonE and GATE. Green Art Together Evolving’s mission is to intensify the relationship between the arts and unfolding sustainable narrative.


The intersection of the arts and science shares common ground to discover ways to understand and advance ideas to sustain and preserve planet earth. Project Sustainable Acts: Mother Earth’s Embrace/SAMEE investigates and explores the importance of the artist in communicating concerns of organic and sustainable food production, climate change, population growth, social justice, water and pollution. Artists are the interpreters; they are the translators of complex scientific information. Art is a vehicle for igniting conversation that stimulates inner emotional human connections to inspire action.

Art raises questions, awareness, exposes inconsistencies, provokes interdisciplinary, transdicsiplinary and systems thinking and insists on collaboration and participation to unleash the senses to respond and dream beyond everyday reality -- and to make a difference.

Sustainable and collaborative efforts in communities transformed by aesthetic interests in the arts can potentially advance solutions of everyday critical issues, encourage equitable uses of resources, and link environmental issues with socially responsible behavior.
