Artists are inspiring changemakers, they have the ability to translate emotions and spread beauty and the urge for change, better than anyone. Ever since the beginning of ChangeNOW, a special place has always been tailored for artists, designers, art & culture professionals. Each year, a multidisciplinary exhibition invites the participants of the event to reflect on the major environmental and social challenges of the century.

The art exhibition is sustainable and circular
in a number of ways


The artworks, exhibition design and signage use sustainably sourced or recycled materials


A craddle-to-craddle waste management policy is in place. We are also reducing shipping and transport footprint all along the exhibition life-cycle.

Partners Network

Various institutions help us build a circular exhibition, from sourcing mediums to managing the exhibition outputs (sold, showcased again or upcycled).


The topics at stake in the exhibition are an open conversation with all our stakeholders, from our suppliers, to our patrons and partners, to the public through inspiring guided visits and workshops.

Past installations include

Esohpromatém by Rachel Marks

Created by Rachel Marks for ChangeNOW 2020 at the Grand Palais, ESOHPROMATÉM, the French word for Metamorphosis spelled backwards, is an installation created entirely from books and paper that elicit diversity and change within nature and humanity. The public was invited to reflect on their place within nature by entering the trunk of the tree. Here they wrote a promise to nature that was then folded into a cocoon. Each cocoon was placed in the tree with other promises in hopes that as a community we can metamorphose and become a reality.

“The Tree of Light ” is an immersive experience created by ONYO, a 3D-sound collective ritual to reconnect with other species. The audience takes part in a sensory work that awakens the senses as much as it awakens consciousness. Without a screen, you will be surprised by the power of sound and the power of your imagination. By combining art, ecology and well-being, the authors wish to show that ecology is above all an opportunity to rethink ourselves as a society and live in a peaceful world.

Météolithes by Caroline Desnoëttes

Presented in the Circular Economy zone at ChangeNOW 2022, “Météolithes” is a monumental work by artist Caroline Desnoëttes in anthropocite (a stone made of waste, inventend by Néolithe). The artist met the startup Néolithe at ChangeNOW 2020 and they partnered to create the artwork, funded by a patron: Trio-Greenwishes. The work is a mirror and visual interlace between the natural circular economy and the imperfect human one.

The Wall of Change par Tim Zdey, 2022

Created live over 3 days during ChangeNOW 2022, “The Wall of Change” transformed from a blank canvas to a live giant wall painting as people commit to more sustainable behaviors. More than 670 participants committed to reducing their impact on the planet around four themes: ocean, food, fashion, and energy.
