This is a trailer about Art to Change the World's exhibition titled "See. Say. Do! - A collective of 20 artists participating and asking the public "What's Your Issue?"
My goal is to help the needs of people, communities and the planet by including a wide range of arts that give a voice to issues, promote compassion and understanding through conversations and civic engagement.
