CIEL uses culture, innovation, and technology to catalyze social impact in human rights and international development.

We apply cultural strategies, creative expression, and stakeholder engagement, striving to distill lived experience to shift perceptions and norms and seed action. We work across multiple communities, including those most affected, and partner with clients -- NGOs, institutions, and individuals -- to assess and analyze community needs, build effective strategies, and create positive change.

Our passion is to transform creativity into strategic action, through original productions, field and organizational support -- including planning, design, facilitation -- and building and strengthening networks.
