We operate with Three goals in mind


  1. To provide support to artists and arts organizations by handling the administrative responsibilities that community-critical work entails. By taking on the labor of design, archives management, and community development, our clients are able to focus on the creative practices that change the world.

  2. To ensure our support is ethically sustainable by providing the training and documentation that allows our clients to manage their own design presence, archives, and communities as their work grows.

  3. To incubate experimental, innovative, and community-critical work by and for BIPOC. By focusing on these sectors, we aim to support new and vital arts ecosystems.
