Vital Space NewsLetter # 1 January  2013

WELCOME TO OUR BRAND NEW NEWSLETTER

Starting today, Vital Space will be dispatching regular newsletters with our art projects, texts and miscellaneous activities. Vital Space wishes you a rampantly creative, deeply rewarding 2013.

Vital Space is founded on the belief in the power of art to change the world. At a time of major confluence of economic and environmental crises,Vital Space deploys the artist's perspective so as to dissolve the polarisation typifying the current dialogue on our relationship with Nature and with one another. Vital Space is dedicated to the initiation of art projects designed to reach and influence a wide and diverse audience. It strives to demonstrate in the most practical manner that art has its finger on the planet's pulse and can mediate human deliberation on the course of our future.
