Over the past decade I have been partnering up with numerous organizations that are dedicated to making a difference in developing communities and areas that have been negatively impacted by war, poverty, systematic marginalization and political atrophy. While these groups are diverse in their focus, methodology and geographic activity, they are all tied together by their common rejection of the status quo when it comes to affecting change in the lives of forgotten or ignored communities. Through old school bartering I have used my skills as a media artist to participate, profile and promote their projects to increase awareness of their missions. These projects all clarify the often overlooked fact that individuals and collectives of the like-minded CAN make a difference in the world. Check out their work and see how you and your own community can be a part of these global and local solutions.
