Mobilize the creative community for social change? No problem.
We created the concept, launched, and sustained this nonprofit organization to answer two intersecting questions:
1) How can we help creative professionals use their powers for good?
2) How can we help deserving nonprofit organizations look as good as they actually are?
Within three months we had started a movement of creative civic engagement that tested the speed and vision of creatives and nonprofits alike. At the center of it all was a volunteer-driven organization of select professionals from creative fields: EPIC.
IMPACT WE SEE
Now in its ninth year and serving both Chicago and Minneapolis, EPIC’s 1500+ volunteers have provided more than 50 emerging nonprofit organizations with over $4.5 million in creative probono services. World saved.
