A world where individuals, organizations, and communities are equipped to respond to their most complex challenges through collaboration, experimentation and artistic practices.
- To build local capacity for innovation and adaptive change in the arts and social sector
- To create the space and conditions for our partners to take on complex challenges
- To deeply integrate artists and artistic practices into change efforts
What We Believe
Innovation is primarily a process, not a product, fueled by discipline, focus, and a strong will for change. It requires letting go of what is no longer useful and experimenting your way forward. This is difficult and vulnerable work.
Artistic experiences help us learn to navigate the tension between thinking and feeling, both of which are required to respond to complex challenges.
Highly effective teams bring together people with many points of view and engage those differences.
Lasting change occurs when you do real work in tandem with rigorous reflection, and support it with strategic financial investment.
Communities that learn together have more power to shape the future than any one person or organization working alone.
