Artists for Change is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to create high impact film, television, and multimedia projects to inspire individuals, organizations, and communities to bring about positive social change.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
Narrative media—spanning film and TV to emerging episodic forms such as podcasts, VR and webseries—are unique in their ability to engage people’s emotions. Research has established that emotional engagement with multidimensional characters moving through diverse, evocative story worlds, allows for faster access to and more transformative understanding of messages and values.
Socially conscious narratives catalyze the visualization of the impact of our actions, mobilize communities to stand up for what they believe in, and inspire youth to become leaders of their generation. Narrative media developed by artists of all stripes and backgrounds rise the light to grounded solutions via the vital empathy of story across our unpredictable global sociopolitical landscapes.
