Art For Action is a series of InLiquid programs that explore social justice issues through art exhibitions and events, interactive workshops, and community partnerships. The goal of Art for Action is to give artists a platform to tell their stories and connect to audiences, and make a positive impact on the community through art.
InLiquid launched Art for Action in 2013 with Juvenile In Justice, a project and exhibition which won the PNC Arts Alive Award for Innovation in honor of Peggy Amsterdam in 2014 (Arts & Business Council of Greater Philadelphia). Since then, InLiquid has presented multiple exhibitions around issues of gentrification, housing insecurity, identity, migration, and the injustices of the prison system.
InLiquid’s Art for Action exhibitions have been awarded funding by the National Endowment for the Arts, PNC Arts Alive, Penn Treaty Special Services District, The Barra Foundation, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, among many other prestigious foundations and individuals. InLiquid is grateful to all of its funders for investing in this initiative to create meaningful dialogue and social change through art.
