HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) is a socially conscious, ATX-based team of producers who design projects and events that mobilize people to get involved, create & collaborate by donating their time and talent. This partnership between Facebook and HOPE empowers and employs local artists in the community as well as those who have participated in the Facebook AIR Program. Over the course of three days, fifteen artists will team up with local youth groups to execute a 2,465 square foot collaborative mural on the side of The Native, facing I-35, which will remain after SXSW as a gift to the local community.
ABOUT THE FACEBOOK ART DEPARTMENT // The Facebook Art Department includes the Artist in Residence (FB AIR), Analog Research Lab (ARL), and Creative Engagement programs, which have a collective mission to encourage creativity, innovation, openness, and connectivity through art and design. FB AIR invites artists to create site-specific art installations around the world at Facebook offices, and ARLs act as on-site print studios that host immersive learning experiences through the Creative Engagement program. The Facebook Art Department also presents public-facing programs and supports projects that bring together diverse communities in real life and encourage the exploration of creative and critical thinking.
