Still eager to help save the world? Have a creative idea for a project that addresses climate change that you want to see come to life? Head over to our other live brief and apply for an Arts Help Grant!

Talenthouse and Arts Help are on a mission to create a healthier planet, and inspire people to take action to get there!

Climate Change is real—and it is a global crisis that needs to be addressed today with YOUR inspiring creative work. Arts Help is partnering with the Talenthouse community to create educational, powerful, and hopeful creative work in any medium (photography, illustration, motion graphics, graphic design, film, animation, 3D work, AR, sculpture - anything!), inspiring people to pay attention and take action against Climate Change.

Your work should emphasize and focus on Climate Change Action, highlighting the impacts of climate change and the positive action we can take to help Mother Earth. It should be both educational and impactful enough to inspire the viewer to take action!

This is a brief from Arts Help, an award-winning non-profit organization that champions social change through art-centric solutions with artists all across the world. Talk about a perfect partnership with the Talenthouse Community.

Up to 50 Creators will be chosen by Arts Help. Each will receive $2,000 USD per work, which may be featured on official Arts Help and Conscious Crypto Creator channels. That's an enticing incentive pool if we've ever seen one.

  • Need guidance? Here are some POTENTIAL Key Themes your creative work could explore (but you are not limited to these!):

    • Climate Change (In General): What does Climate Change Look like to you in your part of the world? How has climate change impacted your world? Is your community actively working together to combat Climate Change? How can we save our Mother Earth?
