Earlier I blogged about how art is being used for climate change research. Today, I'm going to tell you about how art is being used to support social change. Thanks to LifePrints, I've found out about an awesome organization called Blue Earth Alliance and their program of Photography that Makes a Difference. Their philosophy is that compelling documentary photography can be an impetus for change.
Blue Earth Alliances assists photographers with financial, marketing and technical resources. Their projects range from documenting rape and recovery to Delta blues musicians and from Siberia to Uganda. Their range and impact is incredible. Just one more way that art is making life better.
