21Common seeks to actively embrace the notion of art as a deep dialogical process of exploration between artists, participants and audiences which are relevant to our daily lives, our communities, our personal, social and cultural growth, and the bigger questions that we face as a contemporary global community. Our projects often involve people from diverse backgrounds, who may offer different skills, perspectives and world-views; it is with this collaborative structure in mind that we see art as an experiential process of “research in action”.
