Where do we go to have meaningful conversations?

We asked 100 people about the last thing that inspired them, as a follow up we asked them, how they share said inspirations with the community they care about.
The answer was a resounding, “I’m not exactly sure”

We are interested in true learning, as a society we still ascribe to the “one-to-many” top-down method of teaching and sharing information, which sometimes results in a gap between inspiration and action.

We facilitate thought-provoking discussions that aim to spark and inspire critical and innovative thinking. We facilitate with ambiguous statements that allow community members to take part in a discussion about the topics that inspire them.

We focus on finding solutions, with our tested method, we have had inspiring success.

Our golden objectives, Spark Ideas. Be Inspired. Find Solutions.

 

Impact

We believe that promoting critical and innovative thinking, provides a structure for thought-provoking discussions that cultivates a community that values representative, inclusive and diverse perspectives.

We aim to inspire all but we focus on two demographics specifically, The Independent Learner: The self-driven individual looking to further advance their knowledge.

The Educator: group leader, influencer looking for thought-provoking material to share with students or followers.

 

What I Will Do With $5,000

Our strategic funding goal includes funding our pilot season.

We believe, human-centered design: starts with people (need) ends with innovative solutions (meeting those needs.)

Our goal is to fund our pilot season, 10 discussions which will be filmed and distilled down to digestible highlights to share with our global community.

$2,000 filming needs
$1,000 marketing campaigns
$1,000 parternship opprtunities
$1,000 facilitation expenses
