The Beauty and Power of Art

Saving Lives

Take Action has initiated an art auction to fight hunger in unison with the prominent

Tajan Auction House in Paris, hosting the event.  

 

The October 2021 auction will have a collection of art pieces donated by students, emerging talent and renowned artists.  Funds raised through the auction will be donated to the

World Food Programme.

 

The World Food Programme is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations. It is the world's largest humanitarian organization, the largest one focused on hunger and food security, and the largest provider of school meals. 

 

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, "for its efforts to combat hunger, for its contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas and for acting as a driving force in efforts to prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict."

THE LAST TABOO

Interviewer: Elena Gebhard 

Exploring the limits of growth

The 2020 pandemic has made crystal-clear the close links among massive exploitation of natural resources, environment deterioration and health insecurity. At the same time, its patterns of diffusion and its social impact have been largely shaped by present economic and social inequality. As a result, poverty rates, economic insecurity and unemployment have been dramatically rising all over the world. According to the UN Sustainable Development Report, by July 70 million people had fallen below the international poverty line. This short essay tries to explore some possible links between environment, inequality and growth, which may render most Sustainable Development Goals very hard to be achieved.

Creativity or in this context “design”, in all its complexity, is intelligence creating knowledge.

Design is vital, powerful and provocative.  It enhances imaginative thinking, fosters empathy, while driving on experimentation and new ways of questioning, collaborating and seeing – all crucial elements for the future of innovation, humankind and the planet.

“Breaking Through the Noise” explores the work of Bruce Mau, the visionary Canadian designer, creative problem solver and founder of Massive Change Network.

Setting a Course at QMS copy.jpg

By Kor O’Connell Modern Languages student at the University of Tuscia - Italy

Looking for something light-hearted? A bit of entertainment to distract you from thoughts of disease and decay? A cuddly romance film that’ll take your mind off the looming spectre of death and doom infesting every corner of our public consciousness?

 

Well then steer clear of “Supernova”, the feel-bad film of the year! It’s got the whole kit and caboodle: dementia, ageing gay couples, acclaimed actors, tear-streaked confessions, a delicate violin score by Keaton Henson. In other words, an automatic Academy Award contender.
