Programs

Artists for Conservation (AFC) programs are unique in concept and exist to further our mission to support environmental conservation work through art that celebrates our natural heritage. Through this website - ArtistsForConservation.org - and our programs, we engage, inspire and inform the public, and empower passionate professional artists as effective ambassadors for the environment.

ArtistsForConservation.org is the main portal that supports and promotes all our AFC programs and features several thousand pieces of original and limited edition nature inspired artwork. With over 8,000 original paintings and hundreds of original sculptures for sale valued collectively at over US$30 million, the AFC website is the largest, most sophisticated and most visited site of its kind. It is also the largest and most comprehensive nature art news and events listing resource anywhere.

AFC holds an annual festival in Vancouver, BC. It's a one-of-a-kind, international cultural event supporting and celebrating nature at one of the most spectacular venues on the planet in Vancouver, BC Canada. It's a highly anticipated event in the nature-inspired art field including AFC's annual world's top conservation-themed art exhibit with over 90 original artworks for sale in support of conservation, five documentary films about art and conservation, special lectures, live painting demos, adult/youth workshops, music and more. Thanks to the generous support of our partners, sponsors and donors, AFC is able to develop and run numerous programs. Get involved with the AFC to support us in continuing our mission.
