Make a suggested donation of $25 or more to one of the charitable organizations involved in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic listed on our site and send a copy of the receipt to email@example.com
Once proof of your donation is received, Yourban2030 will share a link with access to over 60 street artists’ drawings for download.
Color your drawing and share your creation on social media, hashtagging it #color4action, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your design may be selected by the artists to be part of an exclusive coloring book—the first of its kind.
Color 4 Action’s street art in support of the COVID-19 emergency is a project of the nonprofit Yourban2030.
Yourban2030 has issued a call to street artists around the world who have chosen public spaces to express their creativity and share their messages—asking them to create black-and-white drawings for charity during the COVID pandemic.
The premise is a simple one: select one of the charitable organizations listed below, make a suggested donation of $25 or more, and forward a copy of your donation receipt via email to receive a link to download the full series of drawings to color.
Many street artists have already enthusiastically joined the COLOR4ACTION campaign.
At the end of the campaign Yourban2030 will use the donated drawings to produce the first international street art coloring book.
WHAT & WHY
HEALTH AND ACCESS TO CARE FOR ALL
Our aim is to build awareness, create solidarity, and support the proliferation and appreciation of the arts while supporting the United Nations Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The COLOR4ACTION project benefits organizations that address the first four of the agenda’s 17 sustainable development goals for transforming our world: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-Being, and Quality Education.
In this historic moment, in which we are encouraged to stay at home to curb the spread of the virus, we have reflected on the therapeutic power of color and wanted to create a simple “tool” that helps people escape their daily stress, that guides their minds through a universe of fantasy, and that encourages reflection, meditation, and creativity.

EVERYWHERE! HELP MAKE THE CAMPAIGN TRULY SOCIAL
We need your participation to help make this awareness campaign a truly global one. Share #color4action on your social channels to ensure widespread dissemination of the campaign and to raise much-needed funds to support those most adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Share your drawings and create stories about the project using the campaign hashtags on your social media channels:
#color4action #streetart4covid #color4covid #yourban2030
Yourban2030 will support this campaign with all of our media channels, including our press office, who will also announce this activation to national and international newspapers and TV.
The goal to raise funds for those most adversely affected by the COVID-19 emergency is one we all share. The Dorothy Circus Gallery has been committed, since its inception, to the promotion of street art. Ron English, Miss Van, Millo, Seth and Saner are among those who have exhibited and created some of the most inspiring street art around the world. For Yourban2030 and the Dorothy Circus Gallery, artistic expression is a fundamental contribution to urban redevelopment.
Color and art should be the elements on which the cities of our dreams are based.
With the support of Allouche Gallery, Jonathan LeVine Projects, and Istanbul’74, the program continues in the US, where over 30,000,000 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and millions more are having difficulty putting food on the table due to loss of work and limited access to much-needed social services.
