About us
Micro Galleries is a socially conscious global arts initiative, social impact project and virtual creative hub that uses art as a vehicle to generate small injections of positive change into your life, others lives, and the world. Think of us as creative clinic where we empower, and develop innovative, creative solutions to local and global issues

We make change possible through dynamic interventions in public and virtual spaces, workshops, art tours, symposiums, think tanks, creative residencies, or simply through bringing our artists' inventions and work into your lives to make them a little better and a lot brighter.

Openness and Intersectionality
We commit to openness in our discussion, and understanding, of the barriers that affect people working in the arts and those who do not participate. We commit to openness of knowledge-sharing lived experiences, and learning of new/other ways of understanding and experiencing the world. Our personal experience is not the default

Current systems, thought-processes and institutions aren't providing the answers, solutions and ideas we need to be the society that we want. We think artists are the key.

Project / Forward: 2047
To end 2020, we sprinkled a little salt bae into the creative realm with our festival this year: Project / Forward: 2047. A weekend-long global projection art festival featured in Kenya, Nepal, Colombia, Indonesia, Peru and Jordan, and being echoed in Hong Kong, Austria, Italy, Spain and Australia. 45 artworks from across the world will be beamed onto unexpected spaces in places we need to be in the spotlight, proving that not only will COVID not stop us from creating, it's giving us the fuel to create the world we want.
There's only so much crisis we can all take in one day! Ammiright!? One thing this world needs right now is some color, some life, some je ne sais quoi! that you all know, only the team at Micro Galleries can bring in small bucket-loads. So...WE MADE A COLORING BOOK!

This book will make you think, question, color, STAY SANE, and best of all – help communities in need by bringing art, enquiry and color into the lives of people who need it the most.

No one can lose when you connect us with the rest of the world. I have achieved that through Micro Galleries and Kat, and my community is grateful. Community members are still talking about you!"

Thamisanqa Sjila
South Africa, Langa Township
While collaborating with other female artists at Urban Paradise Gallery, it was my first time discussing art and collaborating with people from outside my country, something that can not be forgotten. Especially the way women convey their ideas. I became very inspired by the way they work and spoke, which is still rare among female artists in Indonesia
NurNus, Ladies on Wall
Indonesia
The project brought together diverse groups in our community: generational, cultural and socioeconomic. It all seems to bring together different segments of the community such as business, residents, council and creating industries, all working together for free public art. This initiative demonstrates how affective art can be in bringing life, creativity and enthusiasm to a business centre that has elements of despair, empty shops and concerns about retail trading.
