Collective act For hope

The Explorative phase

We have the responsibility to raise the level of creativity for inventing new solutions to old problems.

Creativity is not one thing, it’s a variety of skills applied to life, equally effective for the future. It has the power to widen our mindset and rethink the norm. Creativity is the opposite to perfection. Because we don’t need perfect activism, we need action. Dare to be proud, dare to be wrong. If you don’t dare, nothing original will occur.

This is an exploration of a Collective Act for Hope. United by Creativity.

The need for action is immediate
Now
It is time
To shape our future more equitably
somewhere on our vast earth
Today begins again
Today is the time to act
Today is a step away
From starting off a better tomorrow
Worth fighting for

With the more important things, we try to have an unanimous position, and sometimes it's beneficial that way. You often end up far from where you started. That's definitely productive. Sometimes someone just backs down, and that's cool. It's often about losing control. It's a different kind of practice. After I finished art school I had an art collective with four close friends—amazing people—but because no one wanted to lose control, it didn't last. In this case it's different: you have to learn to lose control.
– Sahara Widoff, Creative Lead HEART 17.
