Press room

Slought ('Sl-aw-t') is 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.

Help us engage others by sharing information about our work in Philadelphia, the world, and the cloud.
