Our mission is to build a social model that aligns with our intrinsic values and motivations.

We recognize the innate value in each of us. Our vision is a world where everyone of us has the opportunity to realize this value and achieves a sense of purpose in life. 

We design and execute projects and events that advance this mission, through shared experiences and deep communication.

Shared Experience is the origin of art and culture. By creating rituals and occasions that heighten our sense of connection, human beings have successfully rallied around a common goal to achieve bigger-than-life results. At Forge Collective, we have produced numerous events and projects that brought people from different social groups together to form meaningful connections. As we head into the world after the lengthy quarantine, shared experiences will be more valuable than ever.

Communication is the foundation of our civilization. Not only to transmit information and knowledge, but to share how we feel is essential to  mutually beneficial human interaction. This fine art of communication which has evolved in all corners of the earth is now endangered. Smart phones, social media, political polarization, class divide, and endless streams of content—all drown out the fine signals and deeper connections.

Forge Collective brings back this invaluable resource by creating a safe environment that encourages honest communication even in contentious situations. We believe that most conflicts can be solved with better communication. As global forces attempt to sow discord, honest and empathetic communication will be our best protection against such attacks.
