Make creative change happen

You understand tired activist cliches gets stale and less effective. (Everyone knows that!) That’s why inventive, exciting, and creative new practices are so desperately needed. The Center for Artistic Activism does research, shares methods, and mentors on-the-ground efforts so fighters for change are as effective as possible.

Your contribution is meaningful because it helps train artists, activists, and investigative journalists to develop innovative, artistic actions that beat corruption, and win campaigns for human rights and increasing democracy.

And we have a special Steve Lambert print to share as a way of saying thank you!

We Believe in Artistic Activism

Negative predictions come easily and the world has enough bitterness. Right now the world needs your vision, your optimism, and your empathy. It needs your drive and motivation. It needs your most compelling stories, your creativity, and it needs your 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 looking for creative and effective ways to counteract bigotry, hate, misinformation and fear.

In the last ten years we’ve reached:

  • thousands of participants
  • worked in 19 countries
  • on 4 continents
  • and counting!

Our alumni have

  • changed national human rights policy in South Africa
  • moved the needle on drug policy in Seattle
  • recaptured millions for infrastructure projects in the Balkans
  • and much more.

We’re excited about what’s ahead and need your support to get there.
