By definition, a catalyst is a substance that initiates or accelerates a reaction. Catalyst applies this principle to communications, using the creative arts to initiate and accelerate impact and response for global issues and concerns, as well as for humanitarian and advocacy organizations, community and housing development groups, medical facilities, corporations and other businesses.
Catalyst Collaborative helps organizations multiply their messages and effectiveness through creative and
strategic communication of their products, services and missions. Catalyst offers comprehensive creative
communications initiatives, from the development of marketing strategies to the implementation of all
aspects of creative communications, including Web design; brochure, annual report and newsletter
development; video promotions and documentary length productions; copywriting; photography; consulting and creative brainstorming.
Established in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Catalyst Studios advances social justice and
humanitarian work by bringing people face to face with unrecognized realities. Communicating through
diverse mediums and outlets, the Studio tells stories of both hope and despair: stories that reveal the
effects of injustice, oppression and apathy, and stories that reveal the hope and compassion that changes
situations and lives. Once encountered, these realities inspire awareness and involvement, and multiply
the advocacy, resources and response for the people and places that need it most.
