ART TO EMPOWER
PEOPLE | PLANET | LEGACIES
Our mission is to build a network of cultural oases by equipping artists with the tools to create socially-minded, community-uniting public art projects.
We envision a revitalized world where artists are empowered to guide humanity to establish a more just society, rebuild a healthy planet, and reclaim their cultural legacies.
11:11 PROJECTS is a mission-driven art agency dedicated to empowering communities
through advocacy, public art production,
and justice-centered programming.
We believe that the planning, design, and management of public space should place the arts in the forefront, telling stories of our collective culture. We believe that environments activated by the arts create empowered people and honor legacies. We produce large-scale art projects with sensitivity and equitability that reflect the value of its citizens.
