YouTube Creators for Change: Barış Özcan

Istanbul-based storyteller Baris produces and broadcasts YouTube videos about art, design, technology and literature. Every week, Baris tries to tell simple stories around complex technological concepts and social issues. Baris is an award-winning art director at Abak.us – the creative agency he founded – and a prominent public speaker at events like TEDx in Turkey. He is married to one of the first-ever Turkish internet bloggers, Devletsah, and has a son.

For his YouTube Creators for Change project, Baris produced a six-part YouTube series in scripted/fiction format on topics related to hate, race, religion, sexual orientation, extremism and xenophobia. Each webisode will bring us into the world of a detective furiously working solve to a mystery and show us his experiences with some of the darkest corners of human nature.
