Our tenets guide our actions, outlooks and ideas…
Connect with people, cultures, communities, ideas. Be connective tissue; don’t fear friction. True connectivity is never facile nor seamless. It reveals vulnerability, unearths differences. Bridge the disparate to discover a shared vernacular.
Collaborate for mutual expansion. By courting various vantage points, we collectively multiply our tools and skill sets. Give pressure, grant permission, encourage exchange. Witness the magic of yielding authority, expectations, control.
Support without stinginess. Bring personal resources — time, advice, space — to others’ disposable. Build infrastructure and grant access so new structures, independent of institutions, can grow.
Experiment , experiment, experiment. When you tire of trying, pause momentarily; return eventually. Evolution occurs through ceaseless curiosity.
Push forward without fail. In the face of failure, particularly. Go beyond limits, knowledge, hurdles, boundaries, hesitation, expectations, realistic possibilities. Understand that a new stasis to embrace (and break) will continuously emerge.
