This first of its kind sequel to Happening: A Clean Energy Revolution is an example of what can happen when a state fully commits itself to a clean energy future, sets aggressive targets, and then shatters them. Minnesota’s not just home to 10,000 lakes—it’s home to a bright renewable energy future as well!
The Art of Activism Because we believe activism is an art.
A series of short films produced by The Redford Center, celebrating local leaders who found meaningful, impactful solutions to the problems they witnessed.
These short films celebrate the efforts of inspiring local leaders, pay tribute to the artistry of their unique style of activism, and help raise awareness for a range of important causes.
In this series, we meet some extraordinary people whose vision and action have created major change in their communities. From a high school principal to the founder of a homeless prenatal program, learn how these individuals found meaningful, impactful solutions to the problems they witnessed—and how you can, too.
The Art of Activism program launched on February 4, 2010, as a way to recognize the work of national and local activists who are making a difference, and to inspire more of the same.
The launch event was held at the Sundance Kabuki Cinemas in San Francisco, with the first event featuring a conversation with Robert Redford, who reflected on his more than 40 year commitment to social and environmental change, and paid tribute to the work of two Bay Area activists, nominated by their communities: Victor Diaz and Avery Hale.
The series offers multi-faceted presentations designed to move, provoke, and inspire the audience and to have a positive impact on people's lives beyond the events.
