Creativity has the power to create change in the world. It’s what unites us, inspires us, and helps us cope. But creativity needs to be more accessible to, and celebrated by, every one of us. Now more than ever, it’s crucial that the next generation sees creators like themselves reflected in society.

At Adobe, we are committed to giving diverse voices a greater platform to share their stories, so that more perspectives and cultures can be seen and understood by everyone.

That’s why we are launching a new conversational series called Create Change, bringing diverse creators together from a spectrum of disciplines to share how they’re using creativity to feel empowered, inspired, and make an impact through their work.

Create Change will feature a variety of creators, from photographers and filmmakers to stylists and chefs—including Lena Waithe (Emmy Award-winning writer, creator, producer and actor), Zerina Akers (costume designer and founder of Black Owned Everything), Yara Shahidi (actress, producer and change agent) Destinee Ross-Sutton (art curator, advisor and artist advocate) and Cleo Wade (poet and author)—so that everyone can be inspired, learn and share in their creativity.

We’re excited to have original artwork and graphics for the series created by talented photographer, graphic designer and Adobe creative resident alumni, Temi Coker.

Create Change will leave viewers with the inspiration they need to create their story, whatever that may be. We hope you’ll join us for the first of eight episodes premiering October 8. Tune in weekly here.

At Adobe, we are excited to be supporting, elevating and amplifying diverse voices. Last month we launched a new chapter in our campaign celebrating the vibrant spectrum of perspectives from creators all around the world, featuring the work of Black creators such as Laci Jordan, JD Barnes, and Kriss Munsya.
