We are all born with the power to imagine what does not yet exist. What if we used that power to create the world we all dream of living in-for ourselves and others?
Meet seven inspiring people-Reza, Sherry and Bob Jason, Aliza Hava, Deeyah Khan, Yarrow Kraner, and Daniele Finzi Pasca-who used their passion and creativity in the arts to reach out and infuse others with values and understanding that are vital for their future and for the community.
Their stories are wildly different, some poetic, others more down-to-earth, but all include a transformative moment that awakened and empowered them. Ignited by a common passion, these talented men and women used the arts-film, theater, photography, drama, dance, and music-and their creative abilities to take a stand against poverty, apathy, closed-mindedness, oppression, and prejudice.
