Art to Change the World (ACW) is a diverse non-profit coalition of changemakers employing the arts in service of positive social change. Fundamental to the ACW mission is the notion that bringing art and the natural/social sciences together deepens cultural understanding and critical thinking, magnifying the potential for change. The purpose of our events and exhibitions is to provoke discussion, reflection and action on a wide variety of topics, and to nurture an empathic, socially-aware and action-oriented community. Participants leave our event with a token reminding them of their commitment to action, big or small.
