TOP CREATIVES CHANGING THE WORLD
What’s Your Passion? (Continued)
Alexi Panos is cofounder of EPIC, which brings clean, sustainable water to those in need and empowers others into global leadership through the fellowship program. I’m completely obsessed with creating things that matter, move, and inspire. Whether that’s writing a book, leading transformational workshops around the globe, speaking in front of crowds or my digital YouTube audience, hosting my show on History Channel, or leading people through their first volunteer trip to Africa, I’m committed to empowering one billion people into their greatness so we can create a “compound inspiration effect” to change the world.
Alice Frank’s poetry, collected in FOA: Full on Arrival, is lauded by Eckhart Tolle. Her narrative feature, Open, is in pre-production. I am passionate about the vulnerability and liberation inherent in our collectively being one body. Violence is loud but done by very few, out of greed or need. The disentangling of a person with his race, religion, and country, seeing each perpetrator of violence as individual, empowers the overwhelming majority of peaceful within every race, religion, and country within the world. Our oneness is the key. We are each other. HEARTPRINTCESS.COM | LOVESLEXICON.COM PHOTO: JAIME BERMUDEZ WITH DAVID FRANK, BODY PAINT: JEN KOSSIN

Sarah Lewis is an art historian, a curator, and the author of the acclaimed book The Rise. The work of culture—art, literature, music, and film—can create transformative change that could have occurred no other way. Knowing this to be true (and to have been true throughout history) informs everything I do, whether it is curating a show, teaching, or writing an article or a book. It is often culture that first poses us with an important question: What are we failing to see, and what would change about our world once we do?
