Welcome to the HOPE (Helping Other People Everywhere) Campaign
a project of HOPE Events Inc. an energy conscious 501(c)3 non-profit focused on involving
artists and their contributions in campaigns, programs and events to support existing
social projects that promote education and peace around the world.
The HOPE Campaign launched in January 2007 and worked to bring the crisis in Darfur,
Sudan to the forefront of the media by raising awareness through the creative class
and developing collaborative projects and funds to help existing educational and social
projects move forward in sustainability.
With the help of contemporary artist Shepard Fairey and hundreds of participating artists
and groups, the HOPE Campaign has raised awareness to millions of people and funds
for important humanitarian and social issues across the world.
Through collaborations with the Creative Community, the HOPE Campaign has highlighted
ways people can educate themselves and others about ongoing issues in Sudan, Kenya,
Congo and America and has also supported educational workshops and programs for
refugees, genocide survivors and nine other projects in East Africa.
The HOPE Campaign is expanding in the U.S. and abroad. After continued growth in 2009,
HOPE is enrolling new artists and partners to assist in the form of talent, technology,
products and funds for upcoming HOPE Events and initiatives. These contributions help
fund all HOPE Projects which allow creatives the ongoing opportunity to share their talents
and time through collaborations and workshops with identified educational programs in
the United States and across the globe.
Join the HOPE Campaign and help bring artists and media to places in need.
In December 2006, Creative Producer and Graphic Artist, Andi Scull and former Marine Captain, International Cease Fire Monitor and Human
Rights Advocate, Brian Steidle began discussing ways to inform and involve the Creative Community in the ongoing crisis in Darfur, Sudan. As
the first American witness to the genocide in Darfur, Steidle felt there was a huge need for more outreach about this humanitarian disaster and
Scull was confident that the artistic and creative industries could help.
Through this brainstorm session Brian and Andi recognized that artists and creatives worldwide have historically shown involvement in
humanitarian and social causes and could contribute talents and skills to help aid human rights issues, build awareness around social programs
and add sustainable global growth to projects promoting education and peace around the world.
These ideas became the foundation for the HOPE Campaign, HOPE Artists and HOPE Events.
After the January 2007 Sundance premiere of The Devil Came On Horseback, the documentary based on Captain Brian Steidle and his experi-
ence in Darfur, a meeting was arranged for Steidle and Scull with contemporary artist Shepard Fairey. They discussed ways to involve artists
and creatives in raising awareness and funds for the Darfur crisis and other educational peace projects through a creative concept called HOPE
(Helping Other People Everywhere).
Together this group launched the HOPE Campaign with a collaboration art piece between Brian Steidle and the OBEY mastermind. Steidle’s photo
of a “Young girl and brother” from a refugee camp in Chad was made into posters, t-shirts and full page ads. It was the single image used for
the sold-out LA Darfur Observance Day Reception art show in City Hall and by September 2007, the HOPE Tee became the #1 selling design of
OBEY Clothing to that date.
Brian Steidle, Andi Scull and Shepard Fairey became the first HOPE Artists and since then hundreds of artists, creatives, people and groups have
joined the HOPE Campaign and this movement towards education and peace.
