Exchange: Conversations for the curious
Exchange is the antidote to isolation and to ignorance.
Exchange — whether of materials between organisms, or ideas between people — is key to the processes we recognize as essential to life.
Some exchanges are visible, predictable, calibrated in known currencies at agreed rates. Others are veiled but potent, with the capacity to create and to devastate in equal measure.
Discover the power of exchange. Shift your perspective and abandon your assumptions.
Together, let’s exchange the seen for the unseen, the built for the unbuilt, and the status quo for lives that are full of challenge, meaning, and impact.
