ENVIRONMENT - SOCIAL ISSUES

Robert Redford and the art of activism

Founded in 2005 by Robert Redford and his children, the Redford Center is led by filmmaker and Chairman of the Board James Redford. The Center works to harness the power of film, video and new media to inspire public engagement, support like-minded community efforts by distributing story-telling tools, and creatively develop education platforms and action campaigns to inspire progress on the issue at hand.

They begin their endeavors by convening groups at the Sundance Mountain Resort, where the environment offers perspective as well as solutions from the synergies of art, industry, and the natural world. In every step of the process they rely on collaboration—with artists, activists, philanthropists, change agents—and at the end of it, their hope is that we empower masses of people to take part in doing something important, and greater than us all.
