ART CARES : Artists' initiative to heal the world through arts


“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.” 

A poem...
A piece of music...
A simple photograph
A sculpture...
A painting...



These are only some of the forms of arts we are familiar with which hides intellectual and spiritual values within them. Art is not only the reflection of cultural values, beliefs and identity. It is not only for the preservation of the many different communities that make up our world. More than that, art chronicles our own lives and experiences over time and it helps us to understand and to share our individual and shared history.


Art, Artists and the Pandemic



"A true artist is not one who is inspired but one who inspires others."





With exhibitions and galleries still under severe restrictions, artists are among those who were heavily burdened by the circumstances brought about by COVID-19. 
Responding to their call for help, ArtisteSpace, Inc., together with Arth Art International in India, launches Art CARES to raise funds and support the artists’ communities. 

A collaboration of artists from India, Malaysia, Philippines, and the United States, Art CARES gallery provides a platform for emerging and distinguished artists to showcase their art pieces online. While they continue to inspire and shed hope through art, these artists also hope to sustain their livelihood and provide help to those who are most vulnerable.

The funds raised through Art CARES will not only provide support to the artists but also benefit Ekta Charitable Trust in India and two (2) selected non-profit organizations in the Philippines -- LINK Center for the Deaf and ASPROFIL Philippines -- to help fund the medical supplies and protective equipment for frontline health workers, and relief for families in need. 






Though the COVID-19 crisis has severely impacted the artistic community, the spirit of human connection and upliftment through arts remains stronger than ever with ART CARES.
