McArthur Center for Creative Impact

Just by existing we impact thousands of people every day, but imagine the positive difference we can make if we leverage everything we know about art, science, and technology to bring people together instead of dividing them. Working together, we can do so much more than we ever could alone. The McArthur Center for Creative Impact (The Impact Project) is a groundbreaking, global initiative. With a multi-million dollar budget, the project is bringing together creative minds to leverage the power of art, science, and technology to share stories and disseminate ideas that create positive change in a world often marked by division.

The Impact Project

The Impact Project is an innovative and groundbreaking global initiative situated in the Greater Philadelphia Area. With a substantial multi-million dollar budget, the project brings together creative minds from diverse fields to harness the power of art, science, and technology. Its primary aim is to share stories and disseminate ideas that foster positive change in a world often marked by division and polarization.

The Impact Project focuses on three key areas, each aimed at pushing the boundaries of creativity and making a lasting impact:

  1. State-of-the-Art Virtual Production Studio: The project aims to establish a cutting-edge virtual production film, broadcast, and mixed reality studio. This studio will be equipped with the latest technologies, including LED volume technology, real-time camera tracking, robotics, motion capture, game engines, and media servers. Through Clear Impact Studios, the project seeks to deliver groundbreaking in-camera visual effects (ICVFX) and extended reality (xR) experiences, revolutionizing the entertainment industry.
  2. World-Class School and Events: The Impact Project emphasizes education and empowerment by establishing a world-class school and organizing powerful events and workshops. These platforms focus on teaching creative technologies and advanced techniques, enabling individuals to create impact-driven content that can reach millions of people. By providing the necessary skills and resources, the project aims to foster a community of changemakers capable of creating lasting positive change on a large scale.
  3. Foundation for Creative Projects: The Impact Project also establishes a foundation to fund and distribute creative projects. This foundation ensures that impactful projects reach as many people as possible and have a profound influence on their lives. By supporting and amplifying creative endeavors, the project aims to drive positive change across various mediums and artistic disciplines.


In addition to these core areas, the Impact Project encompasses an array of ambitious and exciting initiatives:

  • Education and Events: The project offers educational programs and hosts events that facilitate learning, collaboration, and knowledge sharing among creative individuals. These initiatives provide a platform for honing skills, fostering innovation, and inspiring the next generation of creators.
  • Publishing and Production: The project engages in publishing and production activities to disseminate impactful content. By leveraging various mediums such as books, films, documentaries, and digital media, the project amplifies voices and ideas that promote positive change.
  • Coaching and Mentoring: The Impact Project provides coaching and mentoring programs to guide and support individuals in their creative endeavors. By connecting experienced mentors with aspiring creators, the project nurtures talent and cultivates a supportive community.
  • Membership Sites and Learning Platforms: The project establishes membership sites and learning platforms that provide access to exclusive resources, tools, and educational content. These platforms create opportunities for continued growth, networking, and collaboration within the creative community.
  • The Impact Association: The project forms the Impact Association, a community-driven organization that brings together like-minded individuals and organizations committed to creating positive change. The association fosters collaboration, knowledge exchange, and collective action among its members.
  • Strategic Partnerships: The Impact Project seeks strategic partnerships with organizations and institutions that share its vision and mission. These partnerships enable the project to leverage additional resources, expertise, and networks to amplify its impact.
  • Clear Impact Films: Clear Impact Films is a key part of the Impact Project that focuses on producing impactful and socially relevant films. Through storytelling and cinematic excellence, Clear Impact Films aims to engage audiences and spark conversations that lead to positive change.
  • Independent Film Distribution: The project establishes channels for independent film distribution, ensuring that impactful films reach diverse audiences worldwide. By providing a platform for unconventional and thought-provoking content, the project supports independent filmmakers in making a difference through their work.
  • The Impact App: The Impact Project develops a mobile application, known as the Impact App, to serve as a hub for creativity, education, and connection. The app provides a centralized platform for accessing resources, connecting with fellow creatives, and engaging in impact-driven initiatives.
  • The MBS Internet Research Center: The MBS Internet Research Center is an integral part of the Impact Project, focusing on conducting research and exploring the intersection of art, science, and technology. The center’s work advances knowledge, innovation, and understanding in the creative industries.


Finally, the McArthur Center for Creative Impact stands as a testament to the visionary legacy of Ken McArthur, whose intellectual property and vision inspire the project’s endeavors.

Through the collaboration of diverse creative minds and the utilization of cutting-edge technologies, The Impact Project strives to make a tangible and positive difference in the world, fostering unity and understanding among people from all walks of life.

About Us

"Working together we can do so much more than we ever could apart" - Ken McArthur

Our Founder

Ken McArthur - Creator of Impact

Ken McArthur, best-selling author of “Impact: How to Get Noticed, Motivate Millions and Make a Difference in a Noisy World,” has enabled thousands of people to achieve amazing impact by championing the philosophy that partnerships and collaboration build value for everyone.

Selected by Fast Company as one of the 20 Most Influential People Online, Ken’s powerful call to action, “The Impact Manifesto: You Make A Difference Whether You Want To Or Not” was selected for publication by Seth Godin’s brainchild “Change This” which places his manifesto in the company of manifestos written by Seth Godin, Hugh MacLeod, Guy Kawasaki, Chris Anderson, Jay Conrad Levinson, Tom Peters, Malcolm Gladwell and Robert Scoble.

Ken McArthur produced “The Impact Manifesto” as a short film to benefit over 100 non-profit organizations by raising funds and awareness for their programs.

Ken is also the writer, director, and producer of a new feature film, “The Impact Factor Movie” which challenges us to realize we ALL have an impact – whether we want to or not – on thousands of people who we touch in our day-to-day lives by demonstrating that simple things make a HUGE difference.

The popular host of a series of live events that bring together top-level marketers, entrepreneurs, business owners, corporations and non-profit organizations to create multi-million dollar joint venture relationships – he creates incredible, intense impact for product launches and multi-million dollar profits in surprisingly short timeframes.

Regularly asked to speak at leading marketing events, he has managed product launches ranked in the top 400 sites on the Internet. Ken McArthur is also the creator of AffiliateShowcase, a pioneering affiliate program search engine and directory system and the founder of the MBS Internet Research Center, which conducted the world’s largest survey ever attempted on the subject of creating and launching successful information products.

Not satisfied to concentrate entirely on large organizations, Ken also works with select individuals to help them create a decent living utilizing the power of the Internet.

Ken was the official mentor for Sterling Valentine as he took his launch from ZERO to over $100,000 in less than 8 days. Ken and Sterling documented the process as a “proof of concept” for Info Product Blueprint, a massive home study course that is the “bible” of info product creation.

Ken offers top-level coaching and mentoring programs designed to help individuals, corporations and non-profit organizations reach masses of people using the techniques, tactics strategies and systems that he has developed specifically to help people spread their ideas, products and services around the globe.
