Welcome to Creative Action Institute's benefit auction, Art for Action, where the power of art merges with the spirit of change! This 3-week online benefit auction celebrates the use of art as an advocacy tool to create a more equal world and foster sustainability. As we unite under a common goal, we invite you to participate and make a tangible difference.

The art auction features the professional artwork of ten international artists, each of whom partners with Creative Action Institute's Creative Advocacy Practicums. Through art, they empower participants to become grassroots advocates, igniting change in their communities. 

Your bids and donations during this event support our unique programming, enabling girls, women mentors, and grassroots advocates in remote areas to access vital training and resources. Together, we tackle issues like gender-based violence, teen pregnancy, child marriage, deforestation, pollution, and threats to wildlife and biodiversity. 

Bidding is open between Sept. 7th-Sept. 28th, closing at 9pm EST. Please allow up to 1-2 months to receive artwork after bidding closes on Sept. 28th. Proceeds from art sales benefit both Creative Action Institute and the partner artists.

On Thursday, September 21st at 12pm EST, you are invited for a live online event featuring talks from the artists on their work and their use of art as an advocacy tool. Register for the free event below. 

By joining us at the Art for Action Auction, you become an agent of change, promoting art as a catalyst for a brighter, more sustainable future. Thank you!
