On Friday the 24th June at noon local time, we need you to join this
initiative in shrouding art locations across the world in coloured
smoke. This visual act will be a sign of resistance against the growing
disdain for the arts within societies and governments worldwide, and a
sign of support for colleagues who face major cutbacks. Now is the time
to act to show your appreciation and the necessity of the arts!
ARTBOMB is a peaceful art intervention initiated in The Netherlands.
The Dutch Government is about to cut 40% of all cultural funding. This
will result in the disappearance of a multitude of organizations that
excel internationally in their field. This loss will be felt not only by
the Dutch public but by the international community.
One signal, one moment, one act to show support. You can contribute
visual ammunition against the disproportionate cuts to the arts budget.
This visible intervention will rise up around the world where people
value the arts and want to express their support for artists and
