Improv for Humanity was established in 2014 at the Applied Improvisation Network Conference in Austin, Texas by a small group of people who were interested in creating a forum for people to discuss how improvisation is being applied to address the vast array of challenges facing us–from refugee crises and climate change, to disaster preparedness and working with vulnerable populations. From that small group of people, we have grown to over 350 members, from over 27 countries.
