Yosi Sergant has dedicated his career to engaging with the principle belief that, it is “through the lens of culture that we understand the world around us, and we can either shape that culture or allow it to shape us.” Sergant is considered by many one of the premier voices and most prolific producers of strategic cultural organizing and has been invited to speak at and consult with some of the most important foundations, universities, companies and think tanks worldwide.

Yosi has an extensive cross sector career with deep understanding of communications, public relations, brand management, marketing, community organizing and business development.

During the 2008 Presidential campaign, Sergant engaged artists in a vast viral movement, supporting then candidate Senator Barack Obama, the most prominent of which is the now ubiquitous “HOPE poster” he commissioned and ran with artist Shepard Fairey. Sergant, commissioned and supported thousands of creative projects during the campaign with the intention of decentralizing endorsement to include people who normally don’t participate in the election process.

Following the election, Sergant served in the White House Office of Public Engagement before accepting an appointment as the Director of Communications for the National Endowment for the Arts.

In 2010, Sergant launched TaskForce, the premiere pro-social cultural organizing agency that engages leaders of the creative community in strategic, high-impact initiatives designed to raise awareness and build momentum for organizations tackling our world’s most pressing challenges.

Quote from Yosi:

 

“California has always been a beacon for dreamers, a home for creative industries and a state that invests in the vibrant futures of all its residents. TaskForce is thrilled to work with Create CA to ensure that legacy continues through a deep and meaningful investment in modern community organizing and creative communication strategies. The campaign will coalesce the various stakeholder organizations, industries and individuals that understand the role a quality arts education plays in shaping our state’s future.”

– Yosi Sergant, Founder of TaskForce
