About Us

Our Story

Our vision is creating an enabling environment for creative entrepreneurship through collaboration.

We believe in the power of regular people sharing their stories, thoughts and experiences with each other and so we encourage you to submit your stories for consideration. Our hope is to build a platform that gives people a place to have their voices heard and to talk to people about today’s issues. 

Mission

To propagate the media and creative industry through alternative voices, visual storytelling and visual literacy and to make visual storytelling education accessible to the most diverse, spectrum of students, and to hone the skills of future professionals.

Our goal is to creatively enable the creative industry business models that produce economic results and produce quantitative economic statistics.

 

Professionalism

The media and visual communication plays an increasingly vital role in our globally connected lives.

We believe the power of media, media influencers, and the process of creation itself can be enabling to the media practitioner, and the artist’s creation can have a profound impact on others. By giving media consumers and the audience the chance to experience the world from the perspective of another, visual stories have the power to create empathy, bridge differences, and open new avenues of thought.

Visual communication is fast becoming the predominant form of expressive communication worldwide. Visual storytelling, in all its historical and evolving forms, has the unique power of allowing us to experience the life of others through the imagination and perspective of the storyteller.

Those who master this form of communication will be instrumental in the development and advancement of society, and institutions that hope to educate and train visual storytellers play an essential role in that same mission.
