Our Vision

We envision a world in which cultural and civic resources are shared generously.

 
 

We envision a world in which all people are empowered to share their talents to strengthen their communities. Communities in which people feel safe, welcome, and connected to the strangers who cross their paths every day.

We plan to build this future by helping civic and cultural organizations grow of, by, and for their communities. Our intent is transformation: to change the way people design, manage, fund, and engage with community organizations. 

We’re piloting now with 21 organizations in five countries: museums, libraries, theaters, parks, symphonies, and health centers. By 2020, we plan to involve 200 organizations around the world, all striving together to become more inclusive, relevant, and resilient.

OF/BY/FOR ALL is an accelerator for inclusive change. It is a growing global network and a training tool to help organizations to adopt new practices to become OF, BY, and FOR their communities.

OF, BY, and FOR practices complement each other.

  • The more an organization is reflective OF its community, the more people feel represented.

  • The more programming is created BY the community, the more people feel ownership.

  • The more programming is FOR the community, the more everyone will want to participate.

 

We hope you will join us on the journey to become OF/BY/FOR ALL.

What would it look like if your programs were representative of your community and co-created by them?
