Emerald City Arts

In The City we create traditional and digital media and art with a dual purpose: To address global issues and to design new methods for individuals to create and experience media and art in an increasingly connected world. Led by a collective of working artists who bring their own unique perspective and desire to affect positive change to each project, The City seeks to share media which is truly revolutionary.

To honor our commitment to social investment, we support organizations around the world that are doing incredible work in areas that apply to the subject matter of each individual piece of work we create. In addition, 10% of all profit we make from online platforms that showcase our films goes to our Kiva.org lending page – to aid entrepreneurs in the developing world through micro-lending. To learn more about how micro-lending is moving the world forward, start here.
