  • Support Ocean Heroes Affected by Hawaii Wildfires!

    Support Ocean Heroes Affected by Hawaii Wildfires!

    Since 8th August, the Hawaii Island of Maui has been witnessing wildfires that are devastating the historic and cultural city of Lāhaina which was once a royal capital of Hawaii. The contagious wildfires are indirectly affected by Hurricane Dora and the drought on the island from the impacts from climate change. The death toll has reached 106, as the county begins identifying victims. We are grieving with Maui. We stand in solidarity with our Indigenous leaders.

  • Call for a European Cultural Deal for Ukraine

    Call for a European Cultural Deal for Ukraine

    Ukraine needs European imagination and shared action. We need a European Cultural Deal for Ukraine. Art, culture, and shared cultural heritage are under threat and we need urgent emergency actions– like the extraordinary action of Museum for Ukraine, initiated by Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza –but also actions which prepare the future of Ukraine and help to imagine how to rebuild Ukraine. We believe in the fundamental role of culture in resisting the human, humanitarian and geopolitical crisis, and in forging the Ukraine of the future. We urgently call on the EU to include Ukraine’s cultural and creative sectors in the EU’s relief package for Ukraine. We call on the EU institutions to join forces to include emergency needs from the worlds of art, culture and cultural heritage within the EU humanitarian support to Ukraine, and in Ukraine Reconstruction plans. This war is also a cultural war. It needs joint European cultural responses. European and national policy-makers, investors, creators need to ensure that arts and culture are fully part of the future Ukraine Trust Fund to facilitate public and private partnerships which respond to emergency needs and invest in the future. We need a European Cultural Deal for Ukraine.

  • Alianza Mar Menor AMARME

    Alianza Mar Menor AMARME

    The association Alianza Mar Menor AMARME is born out for the defense of the Mar Menor and its basin. All participants are part of the citizen movement which has achieved more than 600,000 signatures for the approval in the Spanish Parliament of the Popular Legislative Initiative (Iniciativa Legislativa Popular) for the Recognition of the Mar Menor Lagoon and its Basin as a Legal Personality. This has already become the 19/2022 Law (from September 30th, 2022), published in the Spanish Official State Gazette (BOE) on October 3rd, 2022. This unique place, the Mar Menor, Europe’s largest salty lagoon, has moved from being a mere object of protection, recuperation, and development, to a recognised subject which is inseparably biological, environmental, cultural, and spiritual. This marks a major milestone—as the Mar Menor is now the first ecosystem in Europe which is recognized as a subject in its own right. This citizen movement has passed on to a large part of citizens all over Spain, and now aims to keep defending the environment, the biodiversity, and the rights which have been obtained for the Mar Menor, through the Alianza Mar Menor AMARME.

  • ‘Speak Up for Antarctica Now. Three Antarctic Resolutions.’

    ‘Speak Up for Antarctica Now. Three Antarctic Resolutions.’

    Antarctica—a Global Common that accounts for 10% of the landmass, 70% of the freshwater, and 90% of the ice of planet Earth—is at once the largest repository of data on our climate history and the greatest menace to all our coastal settlements. The threat that Antarctic ice thinning poses to our own lives is real. Suffice to say, the kilometers-thick ice sheet is melting at the accelerated pace of 200 Olympian swimming pools per minute and a total Antarctic meltdown would increase the global sea level by 60 meters, launching the largest migration ever witnessed by humanity. We collectively need to acknowledge that “What happens in Antarctica does not stay in Antarctica” and that we have a duty to speak up for a continent that has no indigenous people. The governance of Antarctica relies on the Antarctic Treaty System (ATS) with 54 signatories, 29 of which (representing 15% of the world’s countries) have a Consultative Party status. That status grants them the right to vote binding measures and resolutions pertaining to Antarctic matters. The parties meet once a year at the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting (ATCM) to decide the fate of a continent that is 1.4 times the size of Europe. Both ATCMs and rulings remain mostly unreported by the media with minimum pressure for accountability imposed on the national delegates. We want to change that. Advocating for intergenerational justice, on the occasion of this year’s ATCM held in Berlin between May 23 and June 2, 2022, we invite you to ‘Speak Up For Antarctica Now’ and call for Antarctic Resolutions to protect Antarctica from threats such as hydrocarbon extraction, biodiversity loss, and sovereignty disputes. To join the movement you can: Sign the Petitions To ban hydrocarbon extraction in Antarctica permanently. To protect 3.8 million sq Km of Antarctic waters. To commit to international stations in Antarctica. Join the Rally in Berlin at the Brandenburg Gate on May 27 at 12pm The Rally is organized by The Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition, AWI's for Future, Deutsche Umwelthilfe, Fridays for Future, Greenpeace Germany, Pew Bertarelli Ocean Legacy, Scientists for Future, and UNLESS.

Even in the darkest hours, art and culture shine a light and remind us what it is to be human.” Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza – Ukrainian and international artists have united in donating artworks to be auctioned in the  ‘Benefit for Ukraine’s People & Culture’, with the proceeds going directly to several Ukrainian aid and crisis organisations, as well as to benefit Museums for Ukraine. Museums for Ukraine is an initiative founded by Konstantin Akinsha, Caroline Christoph-Bakargiev, Björn Geldhof, Masha Isserlis, Peter Weible and TBA21 chairwoman Francesca Thyssen Bornemisza,  who have galvanised a worldwide coalition of museum directors, curators and philanthropists who wish to support and share a multitude of programs and exhibitions, that recognise the value and importance of Ukrainian cultural heritage and contemporary expression. Museums for Ukraine supports the presentation of Ukrainian art exhibitions across Europe and beyond, in order to truly recognise the value and uniqueness of its art and culture. Contemporary artists are supported in fulfilling their projects and have wider recognition worldwide while a strong educational program is sharing and building knowledge of Ukraine’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.  A  live auction was held last week as part of a benefit held during the Venice Biennale in partnership with Mikolaj Sekutowicz (Therme Art Program and Ikona Collection), Peter Brant Jr. (The Brant Foundation), and hosted by Simon de Pury. The 14 lots generously donated by artists and their galleries raised more than €1.2 million ($1.3 million). An additional 44 works have since been donated and are now available for bidding in a timed online auction, which will run through to May 8, 2022 at 6pm CEST. By adding your bid you are supporting our urgent cause.  The auction also features some pieces from frequent TBA21 collaborators Ernesto Neto, Mario García Torres, Ragnar Kjartansson, Janet Cardiff & George Bures Miller, Teresa Solar (who is auctioning the piece currently on view at our exhibition at the @c3a_andalucia, “Abundant Futures”), and TBA21–Academy collaborators Carl Michael Von Hausswolff and Superflex.  – Recipient organisations include: Maria Prymachenko Family Foundation Appeal of Conscience Foundation Museums for Ukraine 100% Life Museum Crisis Centre Ukrainian Emergency Art Fund Ukrainian Emergency Pavilion

  • Hunga Tonga – Call to Action

    Hunga Tonga – Call to Action

    Following the disastrous eruption of the underwater volcano Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai in the Kingdom of Tonga last weekend, the full extent of the disaster is only beginning to surface now, and the risk of further eruptions remains. Scientists estimated the eruption exerted a force equivalent to 1’000 Hiroshima nuclear bombs that was heard more than 750km away in Fiji to be the largest worldwide over the last 30 years. A thick layer of ash remains across Tonga, poisoning drinking water supplies and killing crops, whilst the world's highest concentration of toxic sulfur dioxide gas currently measured over the Pacific Ocean looms. Unusual currents, acid rain, and volcanic smog are feared to add short-term hazards to the neighboring islands after a tsunami has swept away homes on what is considered one of the lowest-lying groups of islands in the Pacific. The main undersea communications cable has also been damaged, which has led to a lack of power and communication throughout the islands which is hindering aid and support. We are following what is happening with deep concern as communication has been lost with the scattered low-lying islands, since the communication cable was damaged in the blast. Please join us in reaching out helping hands and much-needed funds by supporting the fundraiser of Pita Taufatofua, the Tongan Olympic Flag Bearer, for recovery efforts in the island kingdom. Or you can donate to the International Red Cross, who organize humanitarian disaster relief, care, and aid in situ with the Tongan Red Cross chapter. It was through a huge volcanic eruption more than a decade ago that Hunga Tonga emerged from the depths of the Ocean. TBA21–Academy visited the island in 2018 on a voyage led by the Danish artist group SUPERFLEX with Dr. Dayne Buddo (Director of External Engagement at the Georgia Aquarium, former CEO of Alligator Head Foundation), Ricardo Gomes (Urban Sea Institute), Dr. Barbara Imhof (LIQUIFER Systems Group), Dr. Alex Jordan (Max Planck Institute), Jun Kamei (Amphibio Ltd), Maureen Penjueli (Pacific Network on Globalisation), Markus Reymann (TBA21–Academy), and Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza (TBA21). The lunar landscape, a porous interface between land and sea, shaped our sensations while human and non-human encounters influenced our thinking and broadened our sensual register. SUPERFLEX's voyage aboard the research vessel Dardanella contributed to a larger research project, "Deep Sea Minding," commissioned by TBA21–Academy under the program The Current. In the upcoming days, we are sharing SUPERFLEX's film "Hunga Tonga," as well as an extensive amount of footage and research collected through the program that is made available online as open-source material via TBA21 on st_age and TBA21–Academy's Ocean-Archive.org. "The Tongan people are some of the kindest and warmest people in the world and are already struggling with the effects of climate change. What concerns me immensely apart from the loss of so many homes and livelihoods, Tonga is also home to one of the world's most important calving and mating grounds for the Humpback whales, which is the main source for their tourist economy. What we need now is aid as well as scientific evaluation of the fertile ocean that surrounds this wonderful country. TBA21 is pulling together all the research, resources, and contacts to come up with an efficient aid package to support the Tongan people." Francesca Thyssen-Bornemisza, Chair of TBA21. Please care, share, support, and help to regenerate. Thank you!

  • Sanidad Rural digna y de calidad ¡YA! (‘Decent and quality rural health care NOW!’)

    Sanidad Rural digna y de calidad ¡YA! (‘Decent and quality rural health care NOW!’)

    Call to Action for a Quality Rural Health Service in Castile & León In recent years, the National Health System in the rural areas of Castile & León has been progressively dismantled. In view of this, we are making a call to halt the removal of basic health services. In November 2019, the Department of Health of the regional government (Junta) of Castile & León (Spain) approved the New Model of Health Care in Rural Areas. In this restructuring plan for health services, it is clearly stated that the objective is “to transform the organizational dynamics and clinical model of Primary Health Care in the rural areas of Castile & León”. In short, this model aims at centralizing material and professional resources, eliminating regular consultations at local clinics in small villages. This means that thousands of small villages that currently have weekly consultations with a doctor and nurse will be left without them, and thousands of local clinics will therefore be completely DISMANTLED. At the same time, two new types of institutions will be created: the Rural Grouping Clinic, with daily consultations, and the Proximity Clinic (in towns with larger populations), where medical consultations are by appointment only. It should be stressed that the driving time from any locality to the nearest Rural Grouping Clinic would be at least “30 minutes”. If we add that the rural population is generally older than the population of urban areas, and that it has no local public transport or other means of moving from place to place, getting to a general practitioner for a consultation becomes a truly dramatic affair. Finally, one aspect of the restructuring proposed by this model is the introduction of a system of prior appointments with telephone screening, or medical consultation by telephone to assess a patient’s condition. These options are not valid for most of the elderly population, and we request their withdrawal. The platform for rural health care therefore calls for the following: The repeal of this model and any other that upholds the same principles. To ensure unconditionally and on a national scale that local rural clinics remain open, guaranteeing the presence of doctors and nurses at least once a week in every clinic, regardless of the local population. Immediately fill the posts of health care professionals assigned to each Basic Health Zone, guaranteeing that services are covered during holidays, leaves, shift work burnouts, etc., and scale human resources in accordance with the demographic and territorial needs of each region. To improve the range of services provided by all clinics and supply them with the necessary and sufficient human and material resources. To equip rural areas with a 24-hour ambulance service and a paediatrics service for children under 14. To improve working conditions for health personnel in order to attract them to the rural areas and the so-called ‘Empty Spain’, especially to towns where coverage is difficult. To eliminate telephone screening, which is a barrier to Primary Health Care. Tele-medicine is not a quality health care option, and should be restricted to the exchange of data between professionals. With this call, we are saying: STOP the dismantling of the Rural Health Service, STOP the growing insecurity of life in the countryside, STOP (forced) depopulation, STOP the lack of services. Health is a right, and if the COVID-19 pandemic has taught us anything, it is that work in the countryside is essential for the nation’s food supply. In other words, the rural environment is a source of food and sustenance of life. To maintain rural life, we need a rural health service of respectable quality. Support this initiative on behalf of rural health care! Show your support by signing our manifesto on Change.org change.org/ruralhealth change.org/sanidadrural www.sanidadrural.es

  • Alligator Head Foundation

    Alligator Head Foundation

    The corals are in trouble. Up to 40% of the world's reefs might already be gone, leaving a devastating effect on marine biodiversity. To help them, we need to think differently: by promoting creative, responsible, and respectful engagement with the ocean - especially if that means helping some coral find housing on the way! The artist Claudia Comte has partnered up with Alligator Head Foundation (a Jamaican-based project focusing on science, art, and community) as part of her artist residency with TBA21–Academy, installing three sculptures on the Jamaican seabed. The sculptures function both as a hospitable planting surface for young corals and an attraction for divers, encouraged to engage with the natural habitat in a non-invasive and imaginative way. The Alligator Head Foundation needs your support to extend this into Jamaica's very first underwater sculpture park. Your contribution will support sculpture production and installation and the nursing and planting of the corals.

  • Inaash


    ​Inaash is an organisation dedicated to improving the lives of women in the Palestinian refugee camps of Lebanon. With over 450,000 Palestinian refugees currently living across 12 camps in Lebanon, Inaash has provided opportunities for thousands of women to earn income and provide financial support for their families. Conditions for the communities living in refugee camps in Lebanon are notoriously difficult. Employment opportunities are limited and the level of unemployment is extremely high for men. At the same time, traditionally it is not usual for their women to seek employment outside their immediate surroundings. Living on aid and handouts is neither sufficient for needs nor conducive to psychological wellbeing. It was these social problems that led Huguette Bechara El Khoury (daughter of Lebanon’s first President) to establish Inaash as a way of creating employment and providing an income for refugee women confined to the camps. The one transferable skill the women brought with them to Lebanon was traditional embroidery. Embroidery is the living heritage of Palestine, transferred from mother to daughter through the ages. Inaash’s vision is to conserve it, promote its beauty and keep it relevant in today’s world on behalf of those who produce it. Throughout the last five decades Inaash has worked to both preserve this culture and harness it as a means of livelihood for its practitioners in some five camps located across Lebanon. Since its inception, over 2,000 women have benefited from the production of Inaash products, both in monetary terms and through a sense of community and continuity. Successive generations have passed on the skill from mother to daughter. As a Palestinian immigrant and as an artist whose practice is dedicated to the revival and preservation of historical crafts from the region, Dana Awartani wholeheartedly supports the work of Inaash and its sensitivity to the ongoing political, economic, and humanitarian crisis in Lebanon. Donations will support the local refugee communities who are most severely affected by these difficult times.

    MODATIMA (Movement for the Defence of Water, Protection of the Earth and Respect for the Environment)

    MODATIMA (Movement for the Defense of Water, Protection of the Earth and Respect for the Environment) is an anti-patriarchal organization founded in 2010 in the province of Petorca in the central Chilean region of Valparaíso. Its goal is to defend the rights of farm laborers, workers, and inhabitants of the area who have been affected since the 1990s by the theft and hoarding of water by large-scale agricultural corporations in collusion with politicians. It demands “justice in rivers” against the theft of water and the abuse by the powerful who are currently protected by constitutional warranties and by a legal system that maintains Chile’s water resources in private hands. Throughout the years, the main goal of MODATIMA’s fight has been to denounce abuses and raise awareness about the fight for water in the province of Petorca and Chile as a whole. Since taking part at the Alternative World Water Forum held in Brasilia, in March 2018, MODATIMA is also a member of Red Vida, a network of organizations from all over the Americas that fights for the recovery of waters and the defense of territories. http://modatima.cl/donaciones

    world.350.org | Stand with Filipino Environmental Defenders against the Terror Law!

    Since 2016, when Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte came into power, more than 150 environmental defenders have been killed with impunity. This makes the Philippines one of the deadliest countries for activists opposing illegal logging, destructive mining, or corrupt agribusiness. The Anti-Terrorism Act of 2020 further imperils their safety as it grants even more surveillance and detention powers to government forces, by tagging defenders as terrorists. Sign this petition to demand the repeal of the Terror Law.
