Over the last six years, we have reached over 7,000 people with our work– producing 40+ public engagements, hosting 150+ creative residents around the country and the world, and directly supporting 60+ other nonprofits.

Our impact is measured not only in numbers by the people we touch through our programming, but the ripples that come when you support people who in turn support others.

Whether it's a past resident like Kat Croft, who was planting the seedlings of her timely work Native Sisters four years ago, that's now in production, or Aika Swai, a scholar on decolonization in Cape Town, who created her website in our Fellowship program so she can present her prescient lectures to the global stage, the work of time & space can leave ripples that reach wider and wider shores.
 
We support the people and organizations already doing the work to help us rebalance the world we’re in, so they can widen their impact. We converge people across generations, identities and contexts so we have a better chance at finding whole system solutions.  And we create the conditions for curiosity and the creative leap, towards collective liberation.
