KNOWLEDGE INNOVATION TRANSFORMATION
To put it simply, SEED is an interdisciplinary transition. New kinship with nature, organisms, people and the arts. We are investing in stronger ecosystems, greater autonomy and new possibilities in music.
The objective as a non-profit organization is our increased ability to serve the community. Planting 'seeds' (objectives) that positively impact our lives and the world we belong to. Check the 'Foresight and Synthesis' model below, as a visual representation of our thinking and production.
Specifically, we asked ourselves, what an ideal space, community and location should accomplish and what would it look like? New pathways based on knowledge, innovation and transition. Based on intergenerational participation, towards a 'prepared world' for the challenges ahead.
