Amplifier is a design lab dedicated to amplifying the voices of social change movements through art and community engagement. They do this by facilitating and funding collaborative media experiments between movements and contemporary artists so their message can reach a broader audience.
Amplifier’s goal is to flip artists into activists and observers into participants. They invest in artists as social change agents – cultural creatives that embed activism in their practice to bring civic engagement into their art making. Amplifier’s projects build on the foundation of free and open source art and the potentials when real-life art interventions and digital technology merge.
