Participate in the Hexagon Project Arts Program

The Hexagon Project Arts Program 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.

Although safeguarding the environment has been a long-time Interdependence theme, we chose to give greater emphasis to it this year by declaring Environmental Justice as our 2023 Special Theme.  Fairness and justice to the land, its inhabitants, resources, and all living things contains countless dimensions to explore, learn, inform, reflect, report, create and act upon. 

The following Environmental Declaration of Interdependence is a beginning guide:

A Declaration of Environmental Interdependence

We, the people of planet Earth,

In recognition of the interconnectedness of all life

And the importance of the balance of nature,

Hereby acknowledge our interdependence and affirm our dedication

To life-serving environmental stewardship,

The fulfillment of universal human needs worldwide,

Economic and social well-being,

And a culture of peace and nonviolence,

To ensure a sustainable and harmonious world.

The Interdependence Themes Handout can be found at Forms and Resources.

In addition to these general themes, each year, the Hexagon Project encourages creating around a special theme or themes. See our Blog for this year’s Special Themes at –
