As we gear up for our tenth anniversary in 2017 and look to the future, our mission is more critical than ever. We will continue to be a place of reflection, transformation, and discussion where creative work can critically address the world we live in and imagine future possibilities and alternatives that are not present in our current political and economic reality.
