Solitary precarity out.
Shared prosperity in.
The mission of ArtsPond is to cultivate progressive ideas and untapped potential in the arts into exceptional, everyday shared realities for collective impact on-the-ground and in-the-cloud.
Devoted to radical inclusivity, our mandate is to nurture healthy human ecosystems that challenge and displace escalating spatial, social, economic, and digital injustice and other urgent systemic issues by fostering cooperative actions fusing the values and practices of social innovation and the arts.
Across diverse urban, rural, and virtual communities, our vision is to strengthen collective human engagement and belonging through the cultivation of deep, lifelong connections to the capacity of community-engaged artistic expression to sustain positive social change.
An evolving story, we fulfill our vision through the development of responsive interventions that illustrate the profound capacity of arts and culture to foster a more inclusive and engaged society, strengthen public appreciation and participation in community-building through the arts, and promote the creative vitality and economic prosperity of vulnerable artists and producers from all backgrounds.
Cultivating a more creative and open society, we intentionally adopt collaborative practices crossing cultural, economic, geographic, political, social, and technological boundaries. We actively enable and celebrate the perspectives of diverse interdisciplinary, intergenerational, intercultural, and interability voices. We do so with the assumption that the full spectrum of humanity is better together than we are apart, and community-engaged creativity is a crucial element to bolster and intertwine the best in us all.
