Melanie Schambach

Social artist Melanie Schambach invites diverse people, community groups, and institutions to work together on specific social issues by creating public art through collaborative participatory formats. With a BFA in visual arts and other trainings in arts therapeutics, she has engaged more than 2000 people in creating mobile murals globally, and facilitated thousands of workshops on creativity, belonging and self-discovery across sectors. She believes new methods of engaging people, radical collaborating, and courageous processes that uplift the spirit of love, are some of the ways to contribute to positive transformation. This social arts practice aims to challenge and re-discover the narratives of who we are, how we belong to the earth, and what is our shared responsibility for harmony and wellbeing..
