ABOUT

WHAT WE DO

An organization focused on civic engagement and place-making with the mission of engendering tangible and personal responsibility for public spaces, culture & the environment.

We are still in inception phase and developing and testing a range prototypes. We welcome interest, conversations and partners!

CURRENT PROJECT

colour in faith

The idea is an art orchestration that creates a space for the expression of faith in humanity and universal values. The orchestration would bring faith outside of the walls of institutions into an experience of encounter, expression of common acceptance and tolerance, and offer the opportunity to those of many faiths to extend their reach beyond and across institutional walls. The historic culture of pluralism gets reflected upon, honoured, and expressed in the public realm.The orchestration offers an opportunity to reframe security, reclaiming it from those who use faith to justify and create instability. These cities often have long-standing travel advisories against visiting them on the basis of insecurity. The cities will offer a global invitation from the voice of those who claim cultures of warmth, peace, and acceptance. As places of historic pluralism, these landmarks will be highlighted as a point of reference for what is possible elsewhere in the world.
