The Amplifier Foundation is an art machine for social change.

We are a design lab dedicated to reimagining and amplifying the voices of social change movements through art and community engagement.

We do this by facilitating and funding collaborative media experiments between movements and contemporary artists so their message can reach a broader audience.

Our goal is to flip artists into activists and observers into participants. We invest in artists as social change agents – cultural creatives that embed activism in their practice to bring civic engagement into their artmaking.

Our projects build on the foundation of free and open source art and the potentials when real-life art interventions and digital technology merge.

We aim to build bridges not walls, believing strongly in the innovative power of collaborations between nonprofits on the frontlines and the journalists, artists, and storytellers that most effectively move their messages through the world.
