Our Mission & Vision Statement

Charitable mass participation events that achieve real good in the community!

We connect businesses, artists, charities and communities through extraordinary public art trails and creative projects which enable our partners to achieve their goals.

We celebrate people and places, helping millions of people of all ages to experience art in non-traditional settings.

We provide a platform for amateur and professional artists to showcase their work and design programmes that resonate with children and young people, the outcomes providing a unique insight into the aspirations, hopes, and dreams of future generations.

Worldwide expertise and insights

Since 2008, we’ve worked with international partners to animate cities across four continents including Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Christchurch, Nairobi, Cape Town and São Paulo. Each trail has been purposely designed to deliver the objectives for our partners: telling stories of place and bringing people back to host locations, raising awareness, enabling charitable fundraising, celebrating major anniversaries or giving something back to the local community.
