To give a name to the challenges ahead,
to apply art as a force for change,
to inspire and connect
through the unexpected
— that's why we exist.
Comm—unity Arts Network
WE ARE CAN
Research conducted by FASresearch into how to increase social impact through the arts with 2075 organisations across 92 countries established that 'Community Arts is a global community of ideas but not yet a global community network'. As a result of these findings, Community Arts Lab- Porticus & Hilti Foundation joined hands to form Community Arts Network (CAN).
CAN was co-created by visionaries who believe that the transformative power of the arts can be engaged for social impact. It is a global platform that aims to enable, engage and empower individuals, organisations and communities through arts and unlikely alliances to generate meaningful change and shape a humane future, together.
