WHAT DOES RED BALLOON MEAN?

Red Balloon stands for the power of arts to create positive social impact and initiate change in individuals and community.

 

Red signifies aspirations, passion and courage to solve some of the social challenges faced by the world today. 

 

Balloon symbolizes freedom, imagination, hope and a gravity defying spirit to take a collective leap towards a better future.

<< This film shares the idea on which Red Balloon was founded. It has since developed into an organisation that empowers young people across genders and socio-economic-cultural backgrounds and now includes a wider focus on multiple social issue and harnessing leadership within children. 

PROGRESS THROUGH COLLABORATIONS

Collaborative Action between Red Balloon, mentors, facilitators, young people, educational institutions and other empowered organisations can achieve this vision globally.

 

"Art can create major impact and most importantly influence, persuade and move people to lead change."
