A4C Arts for the Commons is a collective exercise which provides a platform for artists and activists exploring the connections and synergies between visual production and efforts to reclaim the commons. A4C addresses outstanding issues related to human migration, borders, liquid citizenship and social and environmental justice. By creating opportunities for exchange, mutual action and sharing, A4C operates as a platform and attempts to synthesise arts and political engagement. The Collective explores the interstitial spaces between power and communities, traditional arts systems and society, states and territories.
