About WebAntiphon

WebAntiphon Group was founded by Y. A. Dubel. Formerly conceptualized as WebAntiphon Corporation (founded in 2005), but then with new integration of her artist’s practice hit the reset button in 2006 and relaunched as WebAntiphon Group in 2011.

WebAntiphon and its work are not defined by geographical location. Many people wonder if WebAntiphon actually means anything. It does. An antiphon is a reply in a liturgy like in call and response…. so in a context like business and community, the web as a new landscape, we get WebAntiphon. This is at the heart of the founding concept. You call. We Answer. With Mrs. Dubel’s direction we use art to find paths of lesser resistance to facilitate positive change in society and client organizations.

WebAntiphon Group has been greatly inspired by lessons from peer to peer open source movement and conceptual artists. The result has been a process where client projects and plans can be implemented with the expertise of diverse collaborators. Individuals coming together to form fluid teams as needed to fulfill the project’s vision from planning to implementation.

In 2017, over 10 years of research and experience became the basis of the new Empowered Innovation [CFAaP] System. An Art Based Solution based on the 7 Empowered Innovation [CFAaP] Principles

About the Founder

Y.A. Dubel

Y.A. Dubel, best known by friends and family as Yvette, is an engaging speaker-presenter, published author, artist-researcher and strategy consultant with decades committed to social innovation initiatives. She is the mother of 3 much loved adults, happily married for more than 30 yrs to her favorite guy and companion to several rescued animals. She is also the Artist-Researcher coordinating the Campaign for Freedom a UN-recognized nonprofit organization.

Dubel started WebAntiphon out of her passion for social innovation. This great passion of hers impelled her to do intense research and come up with a new understanding of socio-technical infrastructure that led to her unique approach to Art Based Solutions for business solutions that also help communities and the planet.
With her commitment to helping advance art-based inquiry and develop better solutions, Yvette Dubel co-authored contributions (art and text) to “A Heart of Wisdom: Life Writing as Empathetic Inquiry. Complicated Conversation: A Book Series of Curriculum Studies. Volume 39” in 2012. She continued to bring Art Based Research methodologies and insights to business and social challenges.

In 2015 she wrote, “Why Brand Risk Management Innovation Is A Game Changer And how to get ahead of the game“. Her work evolved to simplify complicated concepts down into artwork series as the foundation for thinking forward solutions like Empowered Innovation [CFAaP] system. This focused her attention on individual transformation and its impacts.

Then in 2017 she began refining the Empowered Innovation [CFAaP] trainings through feedback and lessons from participants and referring back to more than 16 years of research. In 2019 Dubel began her collaboration with the nonprofit We the World to lead the Campaign for Freedom with the goal of launching a compassionate freedom movement.
But then 2020 brought new urgency and contextual clarity inspiring her to launch Radical Inclusion Movement as a cocreative endeavor. 

Enter We The World Freedom Campaign

WE, the World is a global coalition-building non-profit organization based in New York City. Founded in 1998 by Rick Ulfik, WE, the World annually connects and promotes thousands of socially conscious organizations and businesses, representing millions of people, to amplify their efforts and generate public awareness and action for peace, justice, sustainability, and transformation. WE uses funds raised to co-sponsor important grassroots community events, provide marketing and outreach, as well as technical support and resources for grassroots partner organizations helping advance a better world that works for all. 

In 2019 Rick and Angel Fullerton, Chief Administrative Officer, invited Yvette Dubel to join the We Team. She became the Artist-Researcher in (virtual) residence coordinating the Campaign for Freedom. As the  creator of the Empowered Innovation[CFAaP] System, as well as its related event series, resources, and services she was excited to explore this social innovation R&D opportunity.  It has emerged from more than a decade of work to develop “Art as Solution” (aka Art Based Solutions)  and Business as Ingredient.  The Campaign is the latest exploration in applications of this work.

The Freedom Campaign is devoted to working with people and organizations to promote freedom for all! WE aim to bring together grassroots movements and organizations to make sure the voices of the people are heard; end society’s mishandling of poverty, drug addiction, and mental illness; and to protect and foster freedom of expression in media, culture and the arts. WE do this through promoting responsible governance for the Common Good; promoting public financing of elections; supporting strategies to reduce corruption; funding and supporting democratic governance practices, institutions, and non-commercial media; promoting media literacy; and advocating for socially responsible public interest practices in media. During 2020 11 Days of Global Unity the Campaign for Freedom team launched the [We]Freedom Film Fest, a short film festival and artist collaborations using the same process shared in this event.

Yvette is such an amazing director! Her warmth and positivity she brings to every meeting and get-together always makes our work feel so worthwhile and enjoyable. Her experience in so many fields also has been really insightful throughout our Freedom Film Festival, and now working on the podcast. I joined the organization and group which she leads because I saw similarities in our beliefs and broad goals, and I wanted to help move an organization like the one she leads, forward; but I continue to be a part of Yvette's projects because of the genuine passion for creating positive change that she always brings when we work together. Having Yvette as a director has been a joy.
