LOADING

AIA stands for Awareness In Art. We believe that art is an effective tool to address questions that humankind faces today

By creating narratives that are multifaceted, artists offer a holistic view on relevant matters. Through their eyes, we experience the world beyond a purely one-dimensional perspective.
  AIA aims to produce awareness. In psychology awareness is the state of being conscious or the quality of being perceptually knowledgable. It is also the ability to perceive, feel, know, or be cognizant of events. We understand art as a vehicle that bridges perception, feelings, knowledge, and cognition to follow the ambitious target to develop strategies for our all future.

To set a common ethical standard in the arts we are working with different experts to create a manifesto to be shared amongst us.
