Equality, diversity, and democracy? impactmania has been covering and connecting with people who drive cultural, social, and economic impact for the last five years. The launch of Digital Nomads — featuring people from 22 countries! — concludes the 2019-2020 impactmania internship program at the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB).

What am I going to do?” They don't know there are people making a difference, let alone connecting with the people who are driving change.
