A positive, empathetic, supportive, collaborative, free and open creative environment is the best one to help us, both collectively and individually, achieve our artistic goals and ambitions.
Every project we do will provide value collectively and individually. We credit individuals for their contribution, but we share in the success of our projects collectively.
Each member of each project is valuable and important, and should be treated as such.
We support each other. Together, we're stronger and more courageous.
We strive to communicate frequently and openly. We are open and honest with each other. We are also careful to be critical in a constructive and respectful manner.
We recognize that organization and intentionality are critical parts of the success of every project. Each person will make the effort to read messages in group chats, respond to requests in a timely manner, and keep the big picture in mind.
Not everyone needs to (or can) be involved in every project, but everyone needs to offer their support and constructive feedback if asked.
We strive to operate democratically and in a decentralized way as much as possible.
We strive to assume the best of each other, have patience with each other, and commit to earning each other's trust.
If we start a project, we strive to finish the project.
We strive to grow our individual skills independently and bring that learning back to the collective.
We are committed to fundraising efforts that will cover the costs of our projects, and eventually compensate each artist for their valuable time.
