We select one target culture and three social topics from this culture. We send you the background, problems, and related emotions people struggle with on each topic. You design and create messages around one or any number of given topics that resonate within you.
You send us mind-shifting work; we post select pieces on AHA social media platforms. We spread your work and messages around the world so we all can feel, see, get inspired, and change our ways.

AHA is a deep challenge to our human emotions and our societal norms. The goal is to address problematic social issues head on and provoke people to change their own thoughts and behaviors to find greater happiness and more meaning in life.
THE WORK SHOULD BE
Honest, Emotional, Direct, Encouraging, and Expressive.
The work must have clarity in its message and encourage people to give pause, question their values, and ultimately inspire them to act consciously.
The reward, while not monetary, is enormous and worthwhile: the satisfaction of shaping better societies and liberating people from conditioned societal mindsets.
