Creative Migration (CM) is a not-for-profit organization that produces documentary films promoting socially engaged art projects that mobilize change.
Vision: We shift perspectives by showing examples of what is possible in our world. We aim to inspire young people to take concrete action in their own lives and communities.
Values: Elevating ideas and stories can spark social change in our everyday lives. Our platform encourages collaboration and participation by providing access to artists in social practice.
GREEN PATRIOT POSTERS (short film)
Green Patriot Posters brings together the strongest contemporary graphic design promoting sustainability and the fight against climate change. This campaign uses dynamic posters to encourage citizen participation in building a sustainable economy (created by The Canary Project). These posters can be general (“We Can Do It!”) or can promote a specific sustainability action.
Green Patriot successfully raised funds to take over eight bus kiosks in San Francisco–during December 2010–via LoudSauce, the first crowdfunded media buying platform that allows art and social causes to take their messages to the streets.

PROSPECT NEW ORLEANS (short film)
Prospect New Orleans is the largest international contemporary art biennial in the United States, specifically created to both economically and culturally revive the city after Hurricane Katrina. During its closing week in January 2009, we witnessed how an ambitious project provides opportunity, change and growth to a place devastated by natural disaster.
WHERE’S MY REVOLUTIONARY SPIRIT? (web series)
In late September 2008, we documented the artist collective, Red76, and their Revolutionary Spirit project in collaboration with Creative Time’s Democracy in America campaign in New York City. Coincidentally, the global financial crisis was just beginning, and we had no idea what a profound moment in history we were about to capture.
