A collective consciousness of empathy & understanding is needed now more than ever. Engaging hearts & minds on today’s most pressing social issues is the first step towards a more equitable future.
AVANTGARTE unites a community of passionate doers around contemporary art, music & conversation in order to empower positive action. By creatively engaging with the world around us we become more aware of its inequities. By deepening our knowledge of the world’s complexities we become better equipped to tackle its challenges.
