In every step of our process we rely on collaboration—with artists, activists, philanthropists, change agents—and at the end of it, our hope is that we empower masses of people to take part in doing something important and greater than us all. Founded by Robert Redford and his children—James, Shauna and Amy—the Redford Center is an extension of their tireless activism and their faith in creativity, humanity, and positive change.
