Sane Energy Art

Sane Energy Project is a leader in creating visuals for our movement. Ask anyone! We create large-scale art for the street and graphic design for media. Most importantly, we lead community art builds.

Why do we believe in art as an organizing tool?

Art speaks faster than words. Art is a way to quickly explain an often complicated story: what the issues and solutions are. It starts conversations, engages the public, and changes consensus.

Art builds community. We believe that not only is the outward-facing art itself important, but that facilitating the process of making art is an act of “in-reach” for activists. Coming together to MAKE art is a powerful shared experience; we facilitate art builds where it’s easy to meet new people, learn, discuss, relax and share stories. THAT builds the movement that changes the world.

Scroll down for a sampling of what our art builds look like and the finished results:

Additionally, we know getting the word OUT is a big part of all of our work. More people will read our message if it is designed with an attractive, eye-catching image. We have made hundred of flyers, postcards, and social media memes to promote events throughout the entire region. Here is a small sample:
