the collective

+ the commons

Together we must move like waves.

Why "next world?"

Our name comes from the brilliant mind and spirit of the artist and activist Cristy C. Road. The word "next" implies continuity. We must build on and continue the good work of community organizers, artists, scholars, authors, teachers, mothers & fathers, and all transformative leaders—past and present—to cultivate and develop practices that establish connection to self, family, and community.
