Dialogue

Nine values guide our organization. These values hold us accountable to our history, clarify our intentions, and guide our continued formation.

One of these values is dialogue, which we perform by fostering a new form of institution that recognizes culture as the exchange of ideas, images, and events. Learn more about this value and how and why our activities enable and perform polycentered conversations by browsing the projects below. The accompanying graphics indicate the values performed and their intensity (rated on a scale of 0 to 6).
