By doing different things better, we inspire others to bring that "different" from Filament into their work and their home. We promise your time at Filament will be the most inspirational and interesting thing you've done in a long time.
We connect people with one another and with their own creativity. We promise the people you connect with at our events will be the most interesting people you'll meet all month, and they'll be different from the people you'll meet anywhere else.
We value people for who they are and the perspectives they bring. We believe meetings are best when we leverage our differences to achieve a common purpose. We promise Filament is a safe space for diversity, not divisiveness
We teach the things you can't learn elsewhere as we build a curriculum that is both creative and crucial. We promise to deliver important things you crave to know in a format you've never experienced.
We constantly create, write, draw, facilitate, design, practice, and revise. Our commitment to creation makes our methods, activities, agendas, tools, and games look better, feel better and -- above all -- work better.
We know your time and attention are both valuable and expensive so we refuse to take more of your time than necessary -- even when you're willing to give it -- making Filament as easy to use as possible.
We will give away the things we uncover, never choosing commerce over collaboration. By sharing our best work, we become curators of a community of amazing practitioners who will, in turn, give their best work back. The money will flow from our giving, but never guide it.
We are a great citizen of our city, focused on becoming an indispensable partner to non-profits and change-makers doing work that matters and making our city better.
