Dear Reader, if you’ve visited before, you know of my fondness for artistic activism. When I came across the article linked below, about Thailand artists for climate action, my socks were blown off!

Not having rights to any of the images, you must follow the link to the article to see what the artists are creating. Then, you may want to follow more links from there. The works are pure inspiration and motivation.


Though metropolitan Bangkok is rapidly pumping out new malls and hotels across its territory, nature conservation organizations and artists have a history of standing together in safeguarding green spaces. They also play a pivotal role in putting other urgent environmental issues on the agenda such as the rising levels of air pollution and animal poaching. Recently, when a black panther was killed in a wildlife sanctuary by one of Thailand’s richest men, artists and activists across the country rose to paint murals, perform music, and demonstrate to make sure this injustice wouldn’t go unnoticed.

  • Thanks for sharing, JoAnn. Their work is a hopeful reminder that not all nations believe that climate change is a Chinese hoax.
    I found the Bangkok’s Fabcafe’s photo of special interest. They used several white umbrellas to create their stand.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
