WHO WE ARE

MTV EXIT is a campaign fighting human trafficking and exploitation by raising awareness, promoting positive behaviour change and driving social action.

Harnessing the power of the MTV brand, MTV EXIT has one vision: to help end human trafficking through the design and implementation of innovative campaigns that equip young people to make informed, empowered decisions.

With the support of AusAID and USAID, MTV EXIT works closely with key stakeholders and influencers across the globe, including international and local celebrities, media and corporate partners, anti-trafficking and youth organisations, government agencies and young people to create targeted campaigns that promote safe migration, and encourage communities to take social action.

HOW WE WORK

On-Air

MTV EXIT works with filmmakers and celebrities to produce on-air programing to raise awareness of human trafficking and exploitation.

Our internationally broadcast programs include a series of multi-language documentaries, Enslaved, Traffic, Invisible Slaves, Sold and
Inhuman Traffic, which present country-specific human trafficking trends through real-life stories hosted by celebrities, including Angelina Jolie, Lucy Liu, Jared Leto, Calle 13, Lara Dutta, Rain, Han Geng and Woo Young.

“Butterfly” is an original MTV EXIT three-part drama series produced in Korea that highlights different aspects of human trafficking. Other drama programming includes a multi-language animation, Intersection, and the short-film series Parallel Lives.

We have also produced a number of international and local music videos with artists including Radiohead, The Killers, Muse, Simple Plan, and The Click Five and local artists from around the globe. As well as a creative series of public service announcements produced across Asia and Europe.

We produce concert and artist specials for many of our live concert events. Past specials have featured artists such as Jason Mraz at the first-ever major international concert in Myanmar, Placebo at Angkor Wat, Super Junior in Hanoi and Simple Plan in Vietnam, to name just a few.

All MTV EXIT programing is rights free and available free-of-charge to broadcasters.

On-the-Ground

MTV EXIT has produced 38 concerts across Asia and Europe and made history by producing the first-ever major international concerts at Angkor Wat in Cambodia, in Yangon, Myanmar and in Dili, Timor-Leste. MTV EXIT concerts have featured top international and local artists, including Placebo, Jason Mraz, Super Junior, Simple Plan, and R.E.M.

Our youth engagement team works across the Asia Pacific region to empower young people through creative workshops, trainings, concerts, and other community events. Our youth engagement program emphasises leadership and creative media-based learning and communication to encourage young people to become advocates for change.

Online

MTVEXIT.org is an interactive platform featuring our latest on-air content, the most up-to-date information on human trafficking, as well as links to anti-trafficking groups, resources, and helplines worldwide. With the goal of raising awareness and driving social action, MTVEXIT.org highlights multimedia content that inspires and empowers young people with information and tools to prevent human trafficking in their communities.

MTV EXIT is active on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram and YouTube. Through these social media platforms, we are reaching and engaging hundreds of thousands of young people worldwide with key anti-trafficking messages, creating an online movement to end modern slavery.

Impact

The MTV EXIT campaign uses a Communications for Development (C4D), results-focused framework to tailor messaging for each program output. Our research and learning team assures results are continuously assessed to inform the design of all of our work and to track the impact of our programs.
