We participate in hyper localized community development through art and design. We observe and uplift global methods of building, growing and living that honor ancestral wisdom and that envision ecosystems out of the violent cycles of spiritual, racial, gender, environmental and class oppressions that grip us. Opportunities to learn and meaningful work which increase access to resources and mobility are a commitment we make to ourselves, in order to secure them for others. We view safety, creative practice and deep reflective dialogue are necessities that our living organisation/organism requires. When we state our mission, we typically point towards our pedagogy, because we view how we work to be as important as what we aim to do. We recognize our collective responses to social conditions, through practices and forms that interest us, may change our direction or timeline. We are humble stewards of a vast future.
