Flare is more than a company, it is a movement. A movement that was created to produce transformative experiences, content, and products that entertain, inform, inspire, and most importantly, shed a light on the most pressing issues facing our world today. Our movement is dedicated to using our voice and platform to build a better future by developing and pioneering new ways of expression and storytelling in many fields, including film, music, fashion, and more. 

We at Flare believe in the power of art and creativity to shape the world around us and we are committed to growing our movement in order to create the change we want to see in the world. That is why we encourage any artists of any kind, who want to make a difference, to join us and together we can make the world a better place.

A LETTER FROM OUR FOUNDER

This I want to believe implicitly: Man was born for love and revolution.”​

Osamu Dazai

These timeless words of Osamu Dazai from his work "The Setting Sun", about a nation in social and moral crisis, create a stark portrait of the inner yearnings of our collective consciousness, to live a life filled with love but also a desire to break free from a society of standards that conflict with our own identities. But Dazai's words are not just a statement of inner truth but also a blueprint for action. A call for us all to stand up against those forces who would wish to divide and conquer us.

At Flare, this call to action is what motivates us every day. We believe that through art, we can give a voice to the voiceless. We can tell stories that inform and inspire. We can help shape the future into a place of belonging and justice. Our name is a constant reminder of how we aspire to live and how we wish to inspire others to live: For love and revolution.

We are a world seemingly in perpetual crisis. Where the cries of suffering echoing from across the globe go unanswered or unheard. At Flare we believe it is time to stand up for those that cannot stand for themselves. For the countless millions suffering in poverty, suffering through hunger, lack of access to clean water and homelessness. For the ecosystems collapsing under the weight of rising temperatures and sea levels. For those succumbing to the poison of hate, racism, sexism, ageism, etc.. For the victims of violence all over the world. For the victims of any oppression or injustice. We stand up for you. We fight for you.

Art, whether it is from the stroke of a paintbrush, the flash of a camera, or the words on a page, has the power to change the world. That is why we encourage artists and innovators of all modalities to join us to share their perspectives, their talents, their skills. To use their voices to show us all a side of the world that we may not know about. To contribute their ideas of how they wish to see the world, how they wish to make the world a better place. 

Together we not only wish to create art but also build real solutions to the problems facing this world. Once the camera turns off, once the pen runs out of ink, once the paintbrush is put down, the work does not end. Complex problems require new ideas, new action, new people. At Flare, we wish to advance new solutions that go past the superficial and get to the root of today's most pressing problems.

Our mission is to empower and elevate others to use their personal form of expression to start a conversation that could could change the world. And to find the passion in their hearts: For Love and Revolution.
