In September 2019, ART 2030 headed to New York for the second edition of ART 2030 New York, with a large-scale and international program.
As with its original aim, ART 2030 New York is intended to be a platform coinciding with the annual United Nations General Assembly session to connect the movers and shakers of the art sector, with the United Nations, the Global Goals sector, businesses, and the people, to ultimately inspire action for a stronger future.
In 2019, ART 2030 New York focused on exemplifying the local-to-global actions and possibilities of Art for the Global Goals and in particular on Art for the special focus on Global Goal 15: Climate Action, in support of the UN Climate Action Summit on the 23rd of September, 2019. This year, ART 2030 New York activations combined physical events with a heighted digital program across ART 2030 and partner platforms during the period.
ART 2030 New York in 2019 also presented one of ART 2030's largest projects to date: Breathe with Me by Jeppe Hein and ART 2030, a public art installation and global community project to raise awareness about climate, health, community and more through one simple action: breathing. Breathe with Me took place both inside the United Nations Headquarters and in Central Park. For more information click here.
