Arts & Culture as Catalysts

We believe art, creativity, and other “common cultural denominators” can serve an invaluable role in making change happen across neighborhoods, cities, and systems. We harness various creative practices that help citizens develop and innovate new ideas for the issues that matter most to them.  


Civic Media, Data, & Tech

We believe that new tools must be developed to help citizens harness their stories and transform civic policies, practices, and systems that affect their daily lives.



Community-Engaged Innovation & Design 

We utilize design as a pathway for transforming community spaces and help people better understand, interact, and value each other.


Food Access & Equity

We believe that by disrupting and enhancing the ways the world produces, distributes, accesses, and understands food, we can help improve global nutrition and health outcomes. We also believe food and food gatherings can serve as catalysts that intersect other social causes and help spark greater impact.



Social Division & Conflict Resolution

We fearlessly confront social, racial, economic, and political conflicts around the world through tools, platforms, and practices that bring different people together and foster greater collective understanding.
