I've realized over the last number of years that the traditional models of social impact are limited. Capitalism and corporations have probably a bigger influence in our lives than nonprofits do. So why not change these systems that have failed us? That's the focus of this engaging conversation I had in October (2014) with Doug Grunther, host of Woodstock Roundtable on Radio Woodstock 100.1 WDST, broadcast throughout the Hudson Valley.
Antidote Collective has always been a platform for social impact through a variety of means, not just consulting for like-minded clients. Here, a sampling of how that's been manifesting (client work included).
Think about how many of your friends and acquaintances work for themselves — not just those with their own business, but also those who freelance or consult (whether full or part time). How many consider themselves “creative”? Chances are, you know a lot. While the positive impact of cultural institutions is pretty much conventional wisdom at this point, the larger creative economy that includes DIY (do-it-yourself) makers and small, creative businesses is less understood.
