Why is Artistic Activism Critical Right Now?

Right now the world needs vision, optimism, and empathy. It needs drive and motivation. It needs the most compelling stories, creativity, and humor. We need new ideas of how the world can work, and new ways to get there.

The Center trains people to use these ideas in effective campaigns through proven methodologies. With your help, the Center for Artistic Activism supports groups and individuals who are using creative and effective ways to counteract bigotry, hate, misinformation and fear.
