Horizontes Fund

Horizontes: Art Against COVID-19

The Horizontes Fund is an initiative among artists, galleries, and art professionals initiated in response to the crisis generated by the pandemic in Brazil’s most vulnerable neighborhoods. Their first campaign was devoted to helping low-income families and socially-excluded communities. Horizontes is starting a new campaign to help indigenous nations who are suffering both from the pandemic and ongoing environmental destruction.

In collaboration with Instituto SocioAmbiental and APIB, two of the most respected indigenous institutions in Brazil, all of the funds raised will be integrally dedicated to help Brazil’s native populations. Horizontes knows that ecological preservation is a key factor in preventing future pandemics, and that helping and protecting the indigenous populations is the most effective way of protecting the forest and the country’s future.

Horizontes believes that, beyond all things, that art is a useful tool in this challenging time which can only be overcome together.
