Credo

Everyone is doing the best they can with what they’ve got.*
Life is a mysterious fig.**

We believe that the best way to make the world a better place is to create positive alternatives, and it’s up to each of us to figure out what they have to contribute.***

We believe that all struggles for social and environmental justice are interconnected. We strive to practice radical solidarity with humans, non-human animals and the environment.

We believe that everyone is on a personal journey and that there is no one “right” way to live. We strive to do the best with what we’ve got and meet people wherever they are.

We believe in the open sharing of knowledge and resources. We strive to give what we can and take only what we need.

We believe that creative expression is a powerful tool for inspiring engagement. We strive to make work that makes people think and take action.

We believe that humor, silliness and play are vital for health and happiness. We strive not to take ourselves too seriously and to laugh uncontrollably as often as possible.

***”Be the change that you want to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
