About

The Project

EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED is a multi-disciplinary project addressing the issue of climate change, conceived and produced by Slideluck Editorial. What started as a photographic project, has evolved into a more holistic and multi-layered experiment, involving different areas of research that together participate to narrate the climate change topic on different levels.

Through a cohesive and integrated study of content, aesthetics, dissemination, formats and awareness, Everything is Connected aims at providing innovative solutions to bring art and photography outside of the museum walls, directly to the people. We believe photography and art should occupy public space, question urban planning, create solutions that consider social distancing, and reinvent new forms of sociality and interaction between people, the urban landscape and the arts.

Connect,
Experiment,
Learn

We feel there’s
a need
to re-invent
the world.

Everything is Connected embraces a multi-layered approach by connecting different disciplines, experimenting new ways to involve and engage with a large public, learning through the results of experimentation and providing the community with new paradigms for communicating climate change. This is done in the hope of contributing to the fundamental narration around climate change, making us reflect and take positive action in mitigating humanity’s footprint.

Our Vision

We believe in the social power of visual communication, but also in the necessity of expanding beyond the narrow boundaries of disciplines. Our aim is to discover and produce new multi-disciplinary solutions and paradigms for effectively communicating causes and consequences of climate change. This experimental approach will hopefully lead to a long-term cultural transition by aligning human health, ecological sustainability and social justice.

What We Do

Everythingisconnected. eu

We collect and showcase our projects, as well as others’ worldwide ideas that show interesting and forward-thinking ways to connect different disciplines as ways of amplifying the message around the topic of climate change.

THINK TANK (COMING SOON)

Slideluck Editorial is creating a research group composed of credible professionals specialised in the different areas of visual art, science, mass media, education, public space, activism and sustainable design. The group will work on creating hybrid and innovative solutions that are able to translate important scientific notions and figures into artistic projects.
