Right to sight
Project Light is a global art campaign by Peek Vision and Fine Acts. It aims to increase public understanding, engagement and support for the right to sight. We believe that everyone, everywhere, deserves access to good vision.
The initial phase of the campaign focuses on the creation of a strong foundation of contemporary pieces, across disciplines and mediums, focusing - like never before - on the right to sight.
To launch the project, we are holding an exhibition in London of commissioned works from sighted, partially-sighted and blind artists, called Shared Vision.
The exhibition will inspire and shape the next phases of the campaign.
Ultimately, over the next three years, our goal is to mobilise multiple contemporary artists from around the world, and tens of thousands of people, to contribute and push for change.
By raising global awareness, we aim to drive local action and influence policy makers to provide basic eye care for their citizens.
Nobody should become or remain visually impaired when this can be prevented or cured.
In 2019, Project Light has been selected as a Finalist in Fast Company's World Changing Ideas Awards.
Project Light is one of ten finalists in the Creativity category of the Awards that honor "innovative solutions to issues facing humanity". 2019 was the most competitive year for the awards, with a total of nearly 2000 entries.
