Our Philosophy

01 We believe

'Creativity and innovation' - is the ability to generate new ideas, imagine alternatives and mastermind breakthrough. It is the source of intellect, leadership and enterprise.

Creative people - transform lives and shape the future. By expanding our creative capacity today we ensure our better tomorrow.

Education for creativity - is the priority of the 21 century education. It must be available to all. 

02 We are a platform

MASK is a platform for young people to explore and energise their creativity and innovation in a safe and supportive environment. A place where they can nurture their visions for a better future and push the boundaries of their artistic and social imaginations. Where young voices are amplified and creativity rewarded.

03 We are a movement

MASK is a movement that unleashes collective creativity. It is a collective of creative minds, together, can influence the long-term course of society and redefine social, economic and cultural progress. Opened to everyone, but most importantly to the disconnected youth, our movement unites the young to take charge of their destinies and consider how they could, together, bring practical change locally, nationally and globally.

04 We are a system

MASK is a system that helps young people generate new imaginative ideas that provoke new possibilities and break new grounds and link them to business and policy community for employment and development opportunity. In the time of the Great Reset, our society needs such a system as a matter of urgency as it liberates positive forces of the young and reconnects them with the world at large fostering a powerful sense of purpose and potential.

05 We are a philosophy

Creativity is visual cognition. It is understood, discovered, taught and learned through the arts. We commit to practice the arts from an early age and throughout our lives. And endeavour to engage with the community through our exhibitions and publications to promote awareness and change perception and policy.
