Sane Energy is a leader is creating art for our movement. Ask anyone!   sane energy is a leader in creating art 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.
