Participate in the Hexagon Project Arts Program

The Hexagon Project Arts Program [or “Hexagon Arts”] aims to use art, in the shape of a hexagon, as a vehicle to bring social change, promote social justice and transform individuals and societies. The program invites young people (aged 4 to 18+ years) and communities all over the world to creatively visualize, illustrate and address issues of social and global themes and express views and beliefs that inspire social action in the community by changing attitudes, promoting justice, empathy, cooperation and interdependence. These artworks are then shared by local and global audiences through annual exhibitions in galleries, museums and social media platforms.


Call for Entries

The theme of “Diversity” is a call to promote global citizenship and enable young people to develop skills for civic literacy such as critical thinking, problem solving, peace building and personal and social responsibility. Students are invited to address other social, cultural, local, regional, national and global issues that they are most concerned and passionate about.
