Lily Yeh orchestrates community-based art projects in some of the most troubled places in the world, transforming lives, including her own. Her efforts are inspired by a belief that art is a human right and that artists can create a foundation for profound social change. A visually stunning and deeply emotional film, THE BAREFOOT ARTIST chronicles Lily Yeh’s remarkable journey as an artist.

The film illustrates her methodology for community building, using art as a foundation, which has evolved over decades while she has worked in impoverished and traumatized communities, kindling hope and a sense of purpose worldwide.
