Art With Impact promotes mental wellness by creating space for young people to learn and connect through art and media. AWI is committed to a future where artists are revered as cultural icons of courage and change, enabling young people to communicate freely and fearlessly about their mental health.
AWI hosts an ongoing short film competition open to anyone around the world, with monthly winners compiled in an interactive film library featuring honest and unique short films on the topic of mental health. Using the emotional power of short film, AWI runs workshops that engage youth in personal, peer-to-peer exploration of their attitudes and ideas surrounding mental health and mental illness and encourages early intervention through on-site resource panels.
