to receive artworks from 128 countries, presenting how they practice and define socially engaged art.</p> <blockquote> <p>We decided to go with the New Greening topic for this year’s award, to call on creative people to start imagining and realising a future of regeneration and restoration of nature - basically a better life for all living being on the planet.</p> </blockquote> <p>We would like to
