Our culture is being standardized to prioritize ad real estate over expression, connection, and insight. Our principles reduced to “personal branding” on profiles rather than visions to aspire to in our lives. Our time plagued by addiction-based algorithms centered on what we lack rather than what we can do.
We must make space for the common good.
We believe that building community around the immutable power of human connection is the answer. Common Good Containers provide place-based space where do-gooders can do good, where those in need can have their needs met, and where cultural creators can express themselves. We craft town squares tailored to our times, contexts that are specifically programmed to help communities thrive.
This project advance the idea that shared identity can generate and fortify our self-esteem and belonging.That the meaningfulness of shared purpose can forge and fortify our communal bonds.That the fulfillment of intimate experiences can reactivate and empower our compassion.
This proposal is your invitation to join us in our community-making, to expand on our ideas, and to help us call people to higher purpose. When this era of social distancing ends, a once-in-a-century opportunity for social connecting will begin. It will be a moment that we must not miss.
In service of the common good,
Aram, Carson, & Shannon
