We believe that people connected are better than people separated;
We believe that a society of connected people is better than a society of separated individuals;
We believe that people connect in myriad ways—formal to informal, over meals, over issues, conversations, discussions, arguments, rallies, protests, parties, festivals...for many different reasons—faith, fun, family, friendship, work, politics, sex, learning, personal growth, celebration..across a range of scales—one-on-one, small groups, large groups, crowds...in different kinds of places—porches, sidewalks, street corners, cafes, public squares, pubs and restaurants, shops, libraries, meeting halls, studios, offices, schools...
for different amounts of time—from a few seconds to a life time.
We believe that people know how to connect and do so naturally when given the opportunity, and the places in which to do it. People don not need to be told how to connect, but they do need places to do it, places that foster connecting in all these different dimensions.
We create places for people to connect.
Places of different size, shape, character, location, access, ownership, duration.
Quiet places, bustling places, natural settings, man-made spaces, small places, purpose places, convenient places and far-off places.
We make sure each place we create fosters connection: its physical design, its environmental qualities, how it is accessed, and its legal status, maintenance, and governance.
