“Change doesn’t just happen by itself. To have real impact we must motivate people, companies, and governments to act, to reassess their behaviours or start a movement. This is what we hope to achieve through Minderoo Pictures,” commented Minderoo Foundation Chairman Andrew Forrest.

It has the capacity to cut through, it can create movements for change and even trigger cultural shifts. Minderoo Pictures is seeking projects that will reach new audiences and inspire them to join us as we work towards a better, fairer world.” headtopics.com

At its heart, Minderoo Foundation believes in the transformative power of the arts to change the world and this new division will allow the Foundation to continue to cut through and inspire global change.”
