Upcycled Solar Panels transformed into Street Art: Let´s celebrate it!

Street Art Berlin is very proud to be partner of a next social project that is innovative and caring in different ways:

The Beam Solar Panel Project.

The Berlin-based magazine The Beam which covers the transition to a zero-carboneconomy, will launch The Solar Panel Art Series in partnership with Little Sun
Foundation, who bring sustainable electricity to families and children worldwide.

Creating a platform where renewable energy harnesses the power of art, The Solar Panel Art Series commissions artists from around the globe to create art-
works on recycled solar panels, with the resulting bespoke works being exhibited across Europe and subsequently sold online in a benefit auction.

Proceeds from the auction will support the “Solar Kids School Program”, a solar project by the Little Sun Foundation that provides clean, safe and sustainable
lighting to school children and their teachers in Rwanda living off the grid, who still rely on dangerous and polluting kerosene lamps. The initiative will see chil-
dren being able to study after dark, and teachers able to prepare lessons using simple and safe solar lighting.

With the first soft-showing of the series earlier this year at the TOA Festival in Berlin, the project 6 months in the making has grown to more than 25 artists from 10different countries, with more than 30 art pieces now ready to be auctioned after further exhibitions throughout Europe this year.

United by the idea that the power of sustainable light and energy can transformlives, The Beam and Little Sun Foundation will launch The Solar Panel Art Series
to promote clean energy, by highlighting the potential where art, technology and nature co-exist.

A list of participating artists and a first preview of some of the artworks can be seen here: http://the-beam.com/art.

Covering the transition to a zero-carbon economy, The Beam magazine was created in 2016 with the aim to empower people all over the world by raising aware-
ness about climate change and sustainability.

The Little Sun Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation founded by artist Olafur Eliasson, with the vision to use clean energy to empower those who need it the
most, especially refugees, orphans, and school children in regions of the world without electricity.

“My ambition to study has increased and I know this will make me to be a doctor someday. My home is full of light every night.”
Abdillah, 8 years old, received a solar lamp
