ARTS & CULTURE
Working with our incredible creative and cultural partners, we tell our stories, uplift our communities, connect on a human level, and imagine. We build space, sustain work and construct narratives that promote our collective well-being.
We believe research builds narratives that affirms ability, access, and power. Too often that narrative fosters a deficit mindset when research is based on marginalized communities. We use research and data to shine a light on root causes of inequity and promote effective strategies for systems-level change.
