Artist Brigade

1000 Pop-Up Hearts

Artist Brigade

Working in cross-sector partnerships in order to bring imagination, vision and heart of artists into the climate narrative in order to mobilize a society paralyzed by climate anxiety and grief.

Artist Brigade is a leaderless, national movement to encourage exponential growth of artists involvement. We launched this fall with three collaborations with Vancouver’s youth climate strikers, Sustainabiliteens. With them we made September’s Imagine-In, October’s 1000 Pop-Up Hearts, in October, to Futurefest Flash Mob in November.

We are inspired and supported in this endeavor with partners including David Suzuki Foundation, UBC Botanical Gardens, SFU’s Faculty of the Environment, and many others.

We are actively recruiting artists and organizations who want to collaborate on solutionary actions in this time of climate emergency. Email info(at) with the subject line BIG YES and we will tell you more. We are looking for you, and for the opportunity to collaborate for change.
