The NATO website provides links to other similar spirited projects in the North and further.
Members should note that this NATO is not to be confused another NATO which is ' The North Atlantic Treaty Organization'. But what is the The North Atlantic Treaty Organization?
"The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is an alliance of 28 countries from North America and Europe committed to fulfilling the goals of the North Atlantic Treaty signed on 4 April 1949. In accordance with the Treaty, the fundamental role of NATO is to safeguard the freedom and security of its member countries by political and military means. NATO safeguards the Allies’ common values of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and the peaceful resolution of disputes, and promotes these values throughout the Euro-Atlantic area. The Alliance embodies the transatlantic link by which the security of North America and Europe are permanently tied together. It is the practical expression of effective collective effort among its members in support of their common interests."

"NATO is a Manchester-based grassroots art collective. Our work as a collective, or through collaborative projects, aims to bring grassroots and underground art
dealing with current social and environmental issues out of the confines of its more typical contexts, exposing it to a more diverse and mainstream audience.
We believe art and culture can be used as part of the transformation of life, society, and our everyday reality, not just a diversion from it."

The Open Council are proud to feature the work of the Northan Arts Tactical Offensive but what is NATO?
