ABOUT

THANKS FOR NOTHING
is a philanthropic platform that gathers actors of the art world, companies and civil society to promote civic and sustainable development projects across the world.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
was created in a global context of major advances but also important fractures: the increasing of social and economic inequalities, as well as political and territorial tensions. We must mobilise ourselves to build a more equitable world.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
creates echoes between artistic creation and its actions.
Just like art, we are pluralistic;
we don’t establish a hierarchy between the causes we defend;
we don’t have borders;
we aim every social category, each territory and each society;
we reinvent ourselves to understand the world in a different way.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
sees art first and foremost as a vector of citizenship. Art helps strengthening the ties in between the private and the public sphere. Art conveys a sensible approach of the world, which allows for intercultural dialogues.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
brings together the art world and civil society associations engaged in sustainable development.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
mobilises the art community to contribute to the improvement of the society. Artists, collectors, curators, thinkers, gallerists, museums and international events represent this vibrant community that participate in our actions and can act as spokespersons for the initiatives which we promote.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
takes concrete actions in three areas: sustainable development for social progress, environmental preservation and the strengthening of human rights, stability and education.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
organises every year a major event gathering the actors and leading figures of the art world. This event seeks to gather a vast audience, while at the same time increasing public awareness of social, environmental and development issues through artistic creation.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
produces cultural events that can take the form of an exhibition, a festival, a program of encounters and discussions, or any other form that could be imagined with the partner location. Each time, we are committed to conceive events according to the reality of the field. At the source of an intensive exchange, our action seeks to be as flexible as possible, with the guiding principle that art is the vehicle of our poetic ambition. Each project is designed together with the artists, the partner location and the promoted charities.

THANKS FOR NOTHING
works in close collaboration with charities and active NGOs on the field. They are part of the project as of the initial stage of reflection, first as designer and finally as beneficiary. They help us understand, through in-depth discussion, their way of functioning, the daily reality of the causes they defend and their specific needs. Thereby, we can design together the ideal project with maximum impact for their actions within their capacities. We support these charities on long-term projects.

Everyone, from actors of the art world, to business and civil society can make their voice matter.
