Forge Collective is for radical honesty. In today’s world with multiple troubled fronts, we have no time for being locked into divisiveness. We need to unleash our innate potential for trusting ourselves and others for our common good. Our mission is to create a world where people maximize this potential.
What We Are
We are an open alliance of creators who produce projects that connect people from different social spheres, in shared experiences that build long-lasting, meaningful networks with pleasure and happiness as our guiding principle. Our long-term vision is an open platform that is part union, guild, playgroup, and support network, with a job board and emergency cash and direct services (childcare etc.) for freelance creators.
Our artists function more as facilitators than lone creators. We recognize the creative potential and the need to connect in everyone. We cultivate an environment where people feel safe and free to tap into their inner knowledge and share them with others, with artists as helping hands.
To activate such potential in creators, we strive to build a socio-economic environment that is conducive to the way they naturally work. Our current market system hinders creativity rather than encourages it. This is not only detrimental to creators, but an enormous waste of labor/innovation resources for the society.
In building our collective, we actively search for a business model that: secures the floor for the artists; builds incentives and stimulates intrinsic motivation; and maximizes rewards in emotional and social capital that keeps on growing.
While our message is universal and intuitive, our projects focus on local communities and tangible results. There are three categories in our activities:
