ART AS ESSENTIAL

Art communicates on multiple levels and is invaluable to complicate our perceptions and broaden our horizons.

COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE

We value each intelligence as having its own unique perspective. We work to bring together intelligences across disciplines and identities.

THE INDIVIDUAL & THE WHOLE

We believe in individual autonomy and collective synergy, holding space for both the individual and the group to thrive.

EMERGENT & ESTABLISHED

We bring together those inside and outside ‘the box,’ to find the intelligence, wisdom, and perspective needed to create new realities.

INTERGENERATIONAL

Each generation holds a unique wisdom. We acknowledge the work that has come before and the work yet to come.

EQUITY & INTEGRITY

Oppression is never isolated and no problem can be solved independently from one another.  We believe lasting change cannot occur without representation, access and sustainability.  

INTEGRAL DESIGN

We look to build and support the re-imagining of spaces, structures and systems that create more equitable realities for people and the planet.

INTERSECTION OF FIELDS

We believe that we cannot fully solve problems without diverse intelligence, representation and access and without providing the space to do so.

INTEGRATION & SPECIALIZATION

We lay the ground for creative reimagining by valuing both holistic thinking and specialization models. The future is non-binary.

Integration and Specialization

CONTEXT & PROCESS AS MUCH AS OUTCOME

Giving too much attention to any one over the other doesn’t only affect the work, it can also cause harm.

WHOLE VALUE

We look to find and honor the whole value of people, ideas and materials, especially those that have traditionally been left out or forgotten and to include whole value measures from the start.

RE-VALUING CREATIVITY

We work to expand the notion of creativity past traditional frameworks as an integral component to all fields and disciplines.

BALANCE OF BASIC NEEDS

We expand the basic needs to include environment, energy, education, health, identity, technology/design, communication, justice/governance and economy and look to support each in our work and others.
