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


A research conducted by FASresearch on 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, Community Arts Lab- Porticus & Hilti Foundation joined hands to form Community Arts Network.

Co-created by visionaries who believe that the transformative power of the arts can be used for social impact, CAN is a 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.
