Imagination is more important than knowledge. 
For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.

The ONE WORLD Festival of Arts & Imagination activates our social imagination to envision and enact change.


ONE WORLD builds capacity and connective tissue among socially-engaged artists, cultural organizers, businesses, policy-makers and thought leaders committed to racial and environmental justice.


Culture – the way we express ourselves and understand each other – can bind us together as ONE WORLD.
