The first performances of Talking Heads at CBGBs, the launch of MTV, the first film about the Soviet underground rock scene, the first interactive TV program to link Americans and Iranians after years of conflict, the first U.S. network to provide a global perspective and feature world music, and the first feature documentary about hip-hop as worldwide protest music.

What do all the above have in common? They are part of the resume of Steven Lawrence, the award-winning producer/director, media innovator and strategist who heads Yerosha Productions.

Since founding Yerosha in 1988, Steven has been producing films and interactive media projects that explore humanity's creativity and resilience, and build connections between cultures. Music and activism have been at the heart of his work.
