The creative revolution starts here!!!

 

You may have seen our youth poetry performances at several high level UN meetings with ECOSOC, UN-DESA and others.  Or maybe you caught our beatboxing battle for girls education with Gordon Brown, Graca Machel and A World at School.  Or perhaps you joined us for a weekend workshop focused on creativity, storytelling and innovation for global social progress.

 

WE ARE OFFICIALLY LAUNCHING!
