The ART OF VALUES Showcase celebrates the expression of values through visual arts. The showcase is being launched in support of World Values Day (19th October 2023) with the theme VALUES Bring Us Together.

Global Values Alliance is proud to announce that the inaugural ART of VALUES Showcase is now open for entries.

This is an opportunity for everyone to connect with their inner artist. Open to all creators from all ages and levels of experience around the world, the event will showcase a diversity of artwork created in a variety of formats & mediums.

Entries should express a value or set of values that are meaningful, relevant to the theme of VALUES Bring Us Together. Examples include values such as “collaboration”, “dedication” or “connection.” Communities can be institutions, such as schools, houses of worship, or workplaces or an art group – it can even be a group of family and friends. They can also be self-defined sub-groups of these larger communities (eg middle school, a church sub-committee or a sales team). A community might even consist of just one person!

Each community can submit up to 6 artworks from your community creations.


A virtual exhibition of the submissions on the 4th Dimension platform will open on 11th January 2024 as part of the launch for the Art of Values Showcase 2024 in support of World Values Day. Here is a link to the demo of the space. Only 6 points are rendered and you can only navigate using the numbers at the bottom – but it gives a good idea of how it will look! 4th Dimension 1st Draft (

You can also organise your own local community exhibition (physical or virtual) from 1-31 October.


A Review Panel will select the artwork to be included in this year’s showcase and we encourage communities to do the same at a community level.

This year’s submissions will be judged by a distinguished panel of selectors.
