“Art should comfort the disturbed
and disturb the comfortable.”
An introduction: My name is Laurel Schwartz. I grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota with a camera, a YouTube channel, and a passion for people. Now, I spend my days in New York City working at the intersection of art and social impact.
I have always loved history. This is because I believe stories change the world. And, I believe the moral arc of the universe is long and it bends towards justice—if only we bend it. The stories we tell and how we tell them matter; they can bend the moral arc.
Storytelling—art, media, music, film—is poetic world-making. Are you ready to make a world together?
