Love is the Answer : Youth and Social Change

less of finding the money or finding the opportunity, it's more of what's going on inside, where's your heart? Everyone is here for a reason and there is a certain calling we all have to use our lives to serve others to make our world a better place for the next generation."

Ian recognizes the need for technology, yet drives home an essential message of utilizing that same technology for positive actions:

"We should be the change instead of technology, technology is a tool that we should use. A lot of the advancements that we have made as a society has been under detrimental purposes. The same technology used to prevent human trafficking is being used to support human trafficking."

On the "Love is the Answer" website, there are new artists constantly signing on. People can submit their art or movement for cultivation or sponsorship.

In September 2012, Ian's new film is being released based upon his experience of “plugging in” to street artists that created wall murals to highlight causes.

To find people in the world, who are interested in becoming involved in the world, is the mission of "Love is the Answer."

In the words of one 17-year-old artist:

"Is this life about me or is it about us? As a global community, we are responsible for each other." - Ian Watt


Ian's experience in Nepal is documented on Northern Lights titled, “loveistheanswer” a short documentary created by diverse young artists collaborating with one another.
