We believe in the power of roots. With the modern ease of movement, people are less connected to place that ever before.
We believe in the full scope of history. That people desire the unvarnished truth of a place, the beautiful and broken complexities intertwined.
We believe that we tell ourselves stories in order to live. Shared stories give us context, deepen our understanding of place, give us bearings and bind us together.
We believe that all people, regardless of race, gender, ancestry or other distinctions, possess an inherent dignity. We are each keepers of the wonders we seek.
