Our work revolves around publishing in-depth research, creating multimedia artwork, and redirecting social investment towards areas of greatest need. We are guided by the principles of transparency, responsibility, and creative freedom. By insisting on such ethics we become the activation energy for change.
We rely on unanimous consensus and radical trust. We explore the role of art in realizing social change, while reimagining investments to meet the needs of our communities. Our mixed methodology allows for deep listening, helping to understand what is being said and to recognize muted realities that must be articulated.
Firestarter is an open space which places greatest value on the way we treat one another. We believe that creativity is an act of defiance – a purposeful act that allows us to transgress borders, to challenge structures of entertainment and philanthropy, to better understand our own histories, and to make the most productive contributions to our community.
