Art for Space is the world's first agency dedicated to gamification of environmental engagement through space and art.


Art for Space creates art on earth for space and in space for earth. AFS brings art to space and back, and also shares art with people around the globe.

Art on earth and in space has the power to unite us, to bring us joy and to show how beautiful our planet is. Join our mission and let this vision become reality!

AFS is dedicated to sustainability in many ways: in terms of ecology and economy, culture and aerospace. The project’s development includes several short-, mid- and long-term goals and can be executed for at least 20-30 years.

Our Team

We are a strong interdisciplinary team of business marketers, computer scientists, storytelling- and media experts, designers, artists and rocket scientists. We are experienced in many coordinational and operational fields and processes. Together we have the expertise to contact the world’s greatest artists and involve them in space art, as well as to plan and execute all steps of sending art to space or creating art in space. We combine elements of different industries to create products and services, art and knowledge that are beneficial to several markets, individuals and processes. Our team consists of people whose work or background is a mixture of rational, analytical and highly creative work at the same time. We have studied Media, Marketing, Computer Science and Engineering, but use these skills to influence different environments.
