Visual Arts League:
a Greenstar Premium Partner

Enjoy great music and artwork from traditional cultures, recorded live in remote villages in the developing world. And support the people who offer you this vision of their way of life, as they build a new future.

Visual Arts League gathers global creative energies and gives them focus. Through the VALWEB site we are setting up a framework to come together to create, experiment, and nurture ideas.

The Visual Arts League began 7 years ago. There have been many changes along the way: problem solving. The organization has jumped from a newsletter in the early formative days, to an Internet web site for faster, more economical, more colorful and up-to-the-minute communication. The web site has become a resource and a tool for artists to use.

Clearly, these goals are in harmony with those of Greenstar. Therefore, we have chosen to connect our mission with Greenstar's and become a Premium Partner. This means that, when you visit the Greenstar website and make a purchase, a portion of the proceeds will be paid to Visual Arts, and a portion will got support Greenstar's worldwide work.

Everybody wins. You get some extraordinary, unusual and thoughtful gifts to use for holidays, birthdays, for your home, or to mark any special occasion. Visual Arts League gains support for its important projects and Greenstar 's international projects also benefit.

So, who is Greenstar?

Greenstar is founded on a simple idea: that all people, no matter where they live, have the same basic needs: for food, shelter, to care for their children and families, to build their future, and to lead a life of learning, creativity and dignity. People in emerging nations, especially in remote rural villages, have problems meeting these needs for many reasons beyond their control.

They don't need charity; all they need is some basic tools and the freedom to use them with their own innate genius -- and they can build a future for themselves.

Greenstar provides some of those tools, as an investment in developing communities. Basic education, health, clean water, vaccination, electricity, and a connection to the world: these are among the programs Greenstar provides to small, off-grid communities, in close consultation with the people and their traditional leaders.

We work with the people to create a gallery of music, artwork, poetry, photography and video. This gallery is the authentic, unfiltered voice of their traditional culture, and Greenstar helps the people to design a set of music CDs, multimedia programs, art prints and small books which can be distributed in digital form, worldwide, through the Internet. We call it "digital culture."

We create a commercial website and promote these digital culture products to nearly 200 million people around the world who work, shop and learn on the Web every day. And we connect international customers with the people in the villages by email. The people in the village decide for themselves how to use the income to improve their lives.

Greenstar Community Centers are installed and working today in small, independent villages in Palestine, Jamaica and India, with more to come in Africa, Asia, South and Central America, the Middle East and throughout the developing world.

More about
the Visual Arts League

Today, artists are challenged to join with the world community in creating a hothouse environment which nurtures creativity. How do we bring art off the walls and pedestals and put it to work?

VAL is addressing that issue. VAL is growing, and with its growth we are an engine for change. There are many ways that we can work together. Your membership means a lot to us. Cruise around our web site. Click the head of Van Gogh for the artists listing...and to see some of the ways we work creatively in the community with teens, children and the red car, the magnet, the EYE, American Harvest, and the sneaker!! Then you can go and visit past shows at Lincoln Center, NY and the University of Medicine and Dentistry, Piscataway, NJ.

VAL is a tax exempt, non-profit, charitable arts organization. Our funding comes from many directions.
