Slought ('Sl-aw-t') is a non-profit organization that engages publics in dialogue about cultural and socio-political change in Philadelphia, the world, and the cloud. We are a new form of institution that builds relationships and social trust through collaboration and the exchange of ideas. For over a decade, we have worked with artists, communities, and institutions worldwide to develop projects that encourage inclusiveness, advocacy, and the sharing of knowledge.
Nine values guide our organization. Our projects develop at the intersection of these values. A graphic accompanies each project on this website to indicate the values performed and their intensity (rated on a scale of 0 to 6).
