by Artbox: Vital Space Project by Danae Stratou and Yanis Varoufakis

A non-profit organization founded in 2010 by artist Danae Stratou and economist Yanis Varoufakis. 

Built on the belief in the power of art to change the world, Vital Space is a participatory platform for all those who believe that an artistic perspective can help civilise, humanise and even rationalise the debate on the current confluence of environmental and economic crises. The platform functions as an open invitation to artists, scientists, activists, theorists, historians etc. to contribute diverse viewpoints from which to look again at the mounting problems regarding Humanity's relationship with Nature and with itself. 

Vital Space aspires to create a deeper awareness about the most pressing issues of our time and to discern how art can be used to reach and influence a wider audience across the world. Acting as a cross-media art platform on which to pose questions concerning globalization and the plight of the environment, Vital Space creates a dialogue regarding the most vital issues of our time and how these can be addressed and expressed through art.

Vital Space revolves around two main axes: (a) the creation and production of visual art works, and (b) the initiation of research programs, conferences, publications and the formation of educational and media products designed to reach and influence a wide and diverse audience. ArtBOX is part of the Vital Space team since its first steps.
