For ages, artists have inspired change. Art helps us express deep-rooted social issues, and its different interpretations and responses have helped people drive change for centuries. Societal artistry is the attempt to address or recognize a particular societal issue using art and creativity. Societal artists are people who use creative skills to work with people or organizations in their community to affect change. Societal functions of art go beyond personal intrinsic value to art's societal benefits. By using their art as an innovative medium for awareness, societal artists are advocates, challenging the biggest issues of our time. Societal art, then, capitalizes on the power of socially-aware works, reaching people in their everyday environments and confronting them with social injustice that is otherwise easily ignored.
As much as political streetwear has long been used as a means to express identity while signifying belonging to a wider group of like-minded people, its roots go deeper. Societal thrives on the ability to address almost every social and environmental issue ranging from philosophy, political, human right and social challenges. Since its inception, societal streetwear has served as an important vehicle in representing the counter-cultural viewpoints of people on the opposite side of the ruling class. The sociopolitical messaging surrounding societal streetwear directly informed its values and structure. Eco-conscious production is part of this foundation as our products are sourced from ethical suppliers that comply to labor, environmental, and safety standards and are printed on-demand. We also use recyclable or biodegradable packaging materials.
