Using Art as Advocacy 

Art has historically been used as a creative means of stimulating dialogues both external and internal.  Across the spectrum, it can enable the opportunity to celebrate what we value or, contemplate perspectives different from our own in a non-confrontational way.  Sometimes a piece simply provides the playful nudge that makes it a little easier to join the conversation and be open to new ideas.

SI enjoys working closely with local artists to help gently encourage an atmosphere friendly towards environmental wellness.  Read about three recent projects that were used to advocate for quality of life improvements in our community.
