In a time of collective sense-making we are actively working as one global community to seek to understand the ripple effects, reframe challenges, and identify opportunities and learnings to create solutions.

This week in the NextGen Global Living Room, Shepard Fairey will be sharing thoughts on his path to harnessing creativity, art, and storytelling to activate movements and change, and will discuss with the NextGen how we can mobilize youth and adults to VOTE.

Shepard is an American contemporary street artist, graphic designer, activist, illustrator, and founder of OBEY Clothing who became widely known during the 2008 U.S. presidential election for his Barack Obama "Hope" poster. The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston has described him as one of the best known and most influential street artists in history, and his work is included in collections at The Smithsonian, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and more.
