Creative Visions was started after Dan Eldon, an artist and activist, was killed at age 22 while covering the conflict in Somalia for Reuters in 1992. In order to keep his legacy of igniting positive social change alive through art and media, his mother Kathy Eldon started the organization and years later launched their Creative Activist Program, an incubator that has helped to grow 180 projects worldwide.
According to the Creative Visions' website:
We are excited and honored to announce that Guest is now a part of their Creative Activist program.
Creative Visions Foundation is a publicly supported 501©3, which supports Creative Activists who use the power of media and the arts to affect positive change in the world.
Last night in Mexico City at Kuii we had our first Kickstarter thank you party. It was a huge success.
Over the past two months we have been working on editing a preview of the film in order to submit it to additional funding sources to start production in the U.S.
At the party we screened this preview to get feedback and comments from the larger community here. It was an amazing opportunity to have people from so many fields give their thoughtful comments on the work we've done so far. We're excited to take this back with us as we continue to work on the film. Photos from the event and more can be seen on Guest's Facebook Page.
WE DID IT! Thanks to the generous support of our 99 backers on Kickstarter, we will be able to finish filming Guest in Mexico!
