ArtSeed’s 2017 theme is Marching Home: Grasping Valor, PreservingÂ FreedomÂ and Protecting theÂ Earth on the Way to Peace. A core stimulus for making works this year is the Mailing Home Project. Our aim is to illuminate the interconnectedness of social and environmental issues, revealing the urgency of how human power relations affect the health of the planet and all the people who live on it.
