An educational, art and story-telling based collaborative, what moves you? projects aim to generate awareness and inspire action by tapping into people’s personal experiences and values. Formed in 2004, to engage community and bring diverse voices into the United Nations around the Millennium Development Goals, WMY traveling portrait/interview exhibits and facilitated dialogues offer diverse perspectives and an in-depth approach to the individual experiences that underlie complex societal issues, such as immigration or environmental justice.
WCPUN is a fiscal sponsor for What Moves You?.
