Creating4Change” is the working title of a feature documentary by EMMY Award-winning documentary filmmaker Sophia Kruz that poses the question: What is the role of art in global women’s empowerment?
From a graffiti artist in the favelas of Brazil raising awareness about domestic violence, to a choreographer in India using dance to rehabilitate victims of human trafficking, this film will profile women who have found innovative ways to use their art to solve the most pressing problems facing women in their communities. The film will feature artists who are working with leaders in government, philanthropy, technology, public health and education to create positive change.
METTA is a service that has arisen from the Art and Social Action blog.
It offers mindful, expressive art experiences to individuals, schools, community organizations as an alternative to STRESS AND LIFE’S STRUGGLES – in community or within self. In finding peaceful, mindful alternatives to life’s social and individual conflicts, METTA will be working in conjunction with Pathways of Minneapolis (pathwaysminneapolis.org)
and the Minneapolis Art Institute on December 4th in a debut collaboration of mindful viewing and contemplative studio art experiences.
