350.org, an organisation that aims to build a global movement to solve the climate crisis, launched Earth in 2010, a collaborative arts project to help spark this movement. Now, select artists (including South Africa’s Freddy Sam) have taken to the streets, creating works that are in public space for all to see.
‘Art has the power to move the masses and get people to stop, think and ideally act on the greatest challenge of our time.’
Below is Freddy Sam’s contribution to the project, ‘Wake Up To The Sun To Change Tomorrow’:
