Our manifesto

The MASK Art Gallery is an alliance of artists and supporters. We are dedicated to:

  • influencing society through art and creativity by strengthening young people’s and communities’ capacity to create and innovate;
  • developing our artists’ careers by building partnerships around the world and raising the status of art and artists globally.

We spring from the fertile soil of art and creativity. We believe that:

  • art shapes creativity, creativity shapes innovation and innovation shapes the world; art is essential to education and must be accessible to all since it enables us to create, realise our potential and advance society;
  • artists are crucial to every aspect of social, economic and cultural life; they change conventions and paradigms, drive forward intellectual thought, transform society and shape our future, which has never been more important.

We pledge to help MASK to further its charitable purpose and support creative education and the development of young people.
