Compathos Foundation 501c3 is a media production, education and research organization harnessing the power of the arts and media to inspire transformation, global citizenry and social action. Compathos engages individuals and communities through the arts, film screenings, workshops, and media rich on-line content. Behind the scenes, Compathos supports artists and filmmakers not only in their craft, but in their expanding roles as “filmanthropists” and social entrepreneurs. Equally important, we help those involved with positive change extend their reach as engaging storytellers.
