WE BUILD OPEN SPACES

We are creating spaces that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth. We are exploring a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity and we provide open stages to the community to present Projects, and to meet and connect. Visit our Events

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

GROWTH AND ADOPTION

By Experience and action, we build adaptable and adjustable centers of gravity in which the Community builds relations, partnerships, awareness and a collaborative environments.

From our Engagement in organizing and hosting community Events, Sessions and Workshops, we earned crucial Experience to develop “out of practice protocols” in building Community Infrastructure. This Experience helped us to initiate and support the emergence of the local community focused Town Halls, where presentations and discussions are held in local time & language. Meet the Town Halls on our Event page 🙂

EDUCATION

In additional collaboration with the Catalyst School, we provide educational resources, Sessions and Workshops to our local communities. Content and concepts are shared and translated between each other.

Catalyst Proposals

The Catalyst Swarm emerges and enables all its resources from within Project Catalyst. Our main actions and operations are presented as Catalyst Proposals and all received fundings to reward our contributors coming directly from the Community Treasury. Our Legitimacy and Accountability is therefore fully based on the communities vote and decision to fund the Swarm and its evolution.

However, it is a true Challenge to build innovative sustainable models without ensured funds. As a Catalyst Funding Round lasts 4 months, we submit since fund 6 our Swarm Proposals with which we slowly but surely build the Swarm and its future
