Dimensions of Impact  

Through the medium of visual storytelling, CatchLight exists to create powerful transformations in the way people understand complex issues of justice, tolerance, and the common good. To better understand our impact, we rigorously measure the difference we make across three dimensions: artist impact, community impact, and social issue impact. Watch this page as we share impacts and insights on the current state of visual storytelling in today's evolving media world.
