We are creative activists. Our mission is to support, promote and amplify the work of creative activists who ignite positive change through storytelling, impact media, art, education and technology.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and United Nations NGO, Creative Visions creates impact media, supports storytellers and empowers education and youth around human rights issues.
We manage a powerful network of activists, artists, filmmakers, advisors and organizations. We also host convenings and strategic gatherings both in-person and online to connect people, raise awareness, and inspire action.
In 1990, Kathy Eldon awakened from a deep sleep with the blueprint for "Creative Visions," an organization that would use the power of arts and media to “help people achieve their potential, for themselves and the planet.” She launched Creative Visions as a production company to create media that matters and together with her daughter Amy, made a series of documentary films.
Following the death of Kathy’s son, Dan, a 22-year old artist and photojournalist killed while covering the conflict in Somalia for Reuters News Agency, they founded Creative Visions Foundation in 1998 as non-profit organization to celebrate and support “creative activists” like Dan.
