PURPOSE & VISION

We Rise was born of rage and a need to do something beautiful and strategic about it. 

There are so many ways to show up in this devastating, challenging, ripe political moment.

As creatives, we craved a platform to share out the brilliance and bravery of our loved ones. 

We needed a space where process is just as important as product, where relationships and visions are tended with respect and care.

It is rare to be able to gather together and create with integrity and genuine inspiration. This is our greatest aspiration, to nurture a culture of game-changing creativity.

Another world is not only possible,

she's on the way and, on a quiet day, if you listen

very carefully you can hear her breathe.
