VICE x Vision and Values
We are here to create a place for people and their ideas. VICE was started by people who wanted to make things they cared about, and who took on the world with curiosity, radical thinking, and an audacious spirit. We are still that company.
Activation is the strategic distribution of VICE Media Group’s content to an audience where they are most active, which is on social platforms.
