Art With Impact promotes mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media.

Our Vision

AWI is committed to a future where artists are revered as cultural icons of courage and change, enabling young people to communicate freely and fearlessly about their mental health. To fulfill this vision, Art With Impact will:

Provide unique and safe spaces to learn, cultivate empathy, and reduce stigma in all regions of North America, connecting individuals to comprehensive mental health resources

Continue to expand and make available the world’s most diverse and compelling collection of short films on mental health, supporting a network of filmmakers, artists and young people in an interactive online community

Maximize collaboration between the arts and social movements by engaging professionals and academic institutions through sustainable partnerships and transparency of methods and outcomes
