What does The Lamp Project aim to accomplish?
We envision a world with a higher quality of art, a higher proportion of generous, socially conscious artists, and a more art educated public. Because our focus is on supporting socially-conscious artists, we hope to inspire even more artists to find charities or causes they believe in and bring about changes in their own unique ways.
How does art solve the world’s problems?
We believe that art itself brings people together to discuss, think, and feel. We believe great art touches on those intangibles that really make us human, in much the same way as charity and volunteering do—we feel more connected and fulfilled as humans both when enjoying great art and when helping others. And through all these means, art engenders peace, community and thought while inspiring inquiry and action.
What types of creative communities are supported?
Ultimately, we would like to support great artists in all art forms who are working to better those around them. We believe that there are many people in the world working to discover and promote artists, so we set ourselves apart by supporting those (1) whose work is of extremely high quality, and (2) who are involved with great causes or charities to make the world a better place.
Who can participate?
Everyone. We need truly excellent people on staff to fulfill a huge variety of positions, from creative to technical to administrative, short-term and long-term—see the latest openings at here. We are always looking for great artists to feature.
I want to showcase my art on The Lamp Project site. How can I be featured?
Send links to some of your work, plus a clear description of who you are as an artist and how you are involved in social causes or charity, to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do a lot of proactive scouting for talented artists and as things get busy we may not get back to everyone.
