Art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.
John Lasseter

Tech to Empower

 

Technology provides more opportunity for education, employment, healthcare, architecture, and more. At the core of any historical human development lies technology, ideas and objects made by people for a function. From the wheel to computers, innovations change the potential of human existence. That's why we focus on empowering people with access to technology and the skills to utilize them.

Art to Inspire

 

Innovation, is fueled by creativity and art is the purest form. Art has the power to help trauma victims cope with loss and grief. It expands the horizon of human possibility by sharing new ideas and challenging old ones. For survivors art can give hope and inspire new ideas to tackle humanitarian challenges. Art can serve as a catalyst for social change by bringing societal problems into focus.  Art can change the world.

OUR HACKS

“Big” Art

We believe that art inspires possibilities, builds community, cultivates creativity, and heals the soul. We curate and build "big" art projects. From street art to art burns, and architectural concepts we use "Big" Art to make a big impact.

Code Training

We teach people how to code. Learning to program allows people from anywhere in the world to compete in the global job market. With a short three month program people can land their first high paying job, launch a business, and develop their future.

Startup Incubation

We provide help developing marketing strategies, business plans, pitching skills, operational strategies, branding, funding requirements and more. We believe that teaching a man business is better than teaching him to fish.

Internet Access

We help develop the local IT infrastructure by providing internet access to remote villages, computer labs, and other technologies in our hackerspaces.

Job Creation

Job creation is the key to creating long term growth. So, that's why we are outsourcing IT jobs to disasterzones. Hire us for your tech needs, both at home and abroad, so we can hire people from disaster zones. This is what we are calling DisasterSourcing.

Material Production

We provide the equipment and training necessary to turn trees into usable lumber, treat bamboo for permanent use, and produce compressed earth bricks.

3d Printed Hands

We are introducing new technology as tools for the greater good. We teach rural villagers how to use 3d modeling software and a 3d printer by creating prosthesis for victims of the quakes.

HakerSpaces

We want to build MakerSpaces that provide a home to technology, tools, knowledge and manpower needed to rebuild.
