ART 4 CAUSE

FREE&UNION X STREET ATELIER X MUNICIPALITY OF THESSALONIKI

Art 4 Cause goal is to spread messages related to sustainability.

After that in cooperation with the Municipality of Thessaloniki and Argiris Ser x Simoni Fontana of STREET ATELIER, we selected public objects that will enable us to spread our awareness campaign.

Most important for us is the walls will be painted by artists from Greece. In other words we want to promote Greek artists, old and new, from Thessaloniki and beyond.

All the actions will be filmed and made into a short film to spread our awareness messages.

How it works

We are partnering with our creative community to create Converse City Forests. A series of murals around the globe that uses Graphenstone’s ecological air purifying paint to eliminate harmful substances such as CO2, formaldehydes and gases. As a result of that is improving the air quality around the murals.

The paint’s lime base absorbs CO2 during the drying process, acting similar to a tree. 

A revolutionary way to fight air pollution. Boysen KNOxOUT is a photocatalytic paint developed on the basis of CristalActiv technology that imitates nature. In other words like the photosynthetic organisms that transform carbon dioxide into oxygen and organic matter thanks to sunlight, KNOxOUT absorbs atmospheric pollutants thanks to a chemical process activated by UV light. Basically, this smog eating paint is serious stuff! 

This way, any surface coated with it becomes an active air-purifying surface. After that it helps protect people from harmful substances.

 

Transform your town into a forest!

 
The Surface covered by the mural has the same effect as 122 trees.

 

Thanks to Converse Greece  for choosing our city for the action.

Urgent Causes

Wall 4 Cause

We are changing the gray of a 170 m. wall in the Deputy City Hall for Cleaning and Recycling of the Municipality of Thessaloniki in the area of Allatini.

 

Wall 4 Cause: We brought the gray to life, creating a mural with colors provided by KRAFT Paints from the COLORS OF GREECE COLLECTION palette. The three primary colors used are green named “Chartaetos” (code CG 433), blue named “Simea” (code CG689), and yellow named “Kanarini” (code CG 620).

 

So we want to get the message across about the importance of recycling and its contribution to the circular economy. The benefits of recycling for society, the environment, and the economy are manifold. But only when it is done correctly and is a way of life for citizens and operation for businesses. Nowadays, there is a great need for a change in a new economic model of sustainable development.

 

“SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT MEANS THAT WE ARE UPGRADING THE LIVING LEVEL OF PEOPLE THROUGH MORE RIGHT AND INTELLIGENT RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AND ONE OF A MODERN ECONOMY THAT CONTRIBUTES TO THE PROSPERITY AND EVOLUTION OF CITIZENS”

 

POWERED BY FREE AND UNION and CURATED BY STREET ATELIER.
