WHAT IS YEA!?
We are an activist hub and creative production studio in the entertainment industry, organizing young media professionals and equipping them with tools to transform our industry and lend their talent to critical social change – ultimately changing the stories that shape our culture and the greater community.
THEORY OF CHANGE
YEA! supports the growth and advancement of Activated Culture Makers (young media professionals ready to leverage their positions for social impact) both inside of Hollywood and as young people passionate about justice, climate, and social change. Our programming primarily serves those who have not been represented within the industry and on screen – young people of color, queer & LGBTQI folx, disabled, and immigrant communities. When these communities gain access to the rooms that create culture, mainstream audiences experience new voices and new perspectives that collectively help us move towards an inclusive, pluralist, and representative society.
If we want content to have a positive and progressive cultural impact, we need to engage the people who make it.
