We need your mask! The Climate Conference COP27 is coming soon, starting 6th November in Egypt! 

You too can contribute to our Maskbook campaign for COP27 by creating your digital or hand-made mask following our guidelines bellow, and have a chance to be exhibited both at the heart of COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh and at the leading photography centre in Cairo, Photopia.


The mask is a free, figurative or abstract creation. It can, for example, be inspired by major current environmental issues (global warming, air pollution, pandemics, etc), or it can be a creation of the imagination, inspired by a sustainable future!

Express your concerns about the environmental crisis and air pollution, and bring your solutions to life. Urbanization, transport, food, consumption, pollution, Utopia, revolution... Be inspired! When creating your mask, make sure your message is clear, and that your artwork is positioned centrally on the mask itself.

Take action with your creativity for your health and for the environment: come and enrich our online gallery and stand alongside renowned environmentalists, artists, and citizens from around the world.

Four important requirements before you start:
1 - Join the circular economy by creating a mask from your waste.
2 - Do not use medical masks intended for use during the pandemic. Protective Covid-19 masks are exclusively reserved for the fight against the virus. Even using them can be dangerous. Make your own mask instead with cardboard or paper-mâché, or start with an expired, defective or used anti-dust or anti-pollution mask that you can then personalize.
3 - Also prepare the information needed for publication: the name of your mask, the explanation of your mask, and the message you want to convey. The stronger, more positive and constructive the message, the better!
4 - Your photo is essential. It must be of good quality and in a landscape format. We must see your eyes!

Each mask is unique. Put all of your artistic, ecological and technical know-how into your mask!

On your masks, get set, go!

Date of creation

I wish to subscribe to the Art of Change 21 newsletter.
By creating my mask, I stand with Maskbook, international art-action project committed to the environment. I declare that climate change and air pollution are a danger to my health and to the health of our planet. I ask that all efforts be made to reduce these threats. I commit to act for the environment in my everyday life.
