        A Catalyst...

By definition, a catalyst is a substance that initiates or accelerates a reaction. Catalyst applies this principle to communications, using the creative arts to initiate and accelerate impact and response for global issues and concerns, as well as for humanitarian and advocacy organizations, community and housing development groups, medical facilities, corporations and other businesses.

        Catalyst Studios, Inc.
Telling the Stories Behind the Statistics

Established in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Catalyst Studios advances social justice and humanitarian work by bringing people face to face with unrecognized realities. Communicating through diverse mediums and outlets, the Studio tells stories of both hope and despair: stories that reveal the effects of injustice, oppression and apathy, and stories that reveal the hope and compassion that changes situations and lives. Once encountered, these realities inspire awareness and involvement, and multiply the advocacy, resources and response for the people and places that need it most.
