Guest Accepted Into Creative Visions Foundation's Project Incubator

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:

With a growing expertise in helping others realize the impact of arts and media projects, in 2006 Creative Visions formerly launched the Creative Activist Program, an incubator and academy to help individuals nurture their visions into reality. Since that time, CV has incubated more than 180 projects and productions on 5 continents, providing fiscal sponsorship, mentorship, education, fundraising, connectivity, and step-by-step toolkits. To date, activists under CV’s umbrella have touched more than 100 million people and raised more than $12 million to fund their projects. Many of the films have also gone on to receive high acclaim, including one of iTunes’ bestselling films HAPPY, Abduction (Hot Docs Winner), A Small Act (Sundance Winner), Give Up Tomorrow (Tribeca Winner) and many more.

First Kickstarter Party A Success!

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.
