gala is a mycelium-like network of art organisations contributing to environmental sustainability through their creative practice.
Planetary health has reached its tipping point. We established our informal, international and decentralised alliance as a way to amplify the voices of artists and art organisations responding to the various social and environmental issues that are a result of this. We act as a ‘knowledge alliance’; strategically sharing resources, information and solidarity. Since 2013 we have grown with partners in Europe, Asia and Latin-America. Our alliance connects and empowers art centres, museums, residencies, art collectives, activists and grassroots initiatives that are strongly embedded in their local communities. Though some are big and others small, what we have in common is that we all perceive the arts as a powerful resource for social and environmental justice. We are all committed to our co-written Manifesto and act according to our Objectives.
