is the space in between extremes
breaking barriers,
blurring lines,
refusing to fall into categories,
embodying the complexity of our everyday.
Spectrum fuels human curiosity,
and is at the heart of ideas worth spreading
pushing us to imagine past the boxes
we place ourselves in.
‘Spectrum’ reflects on the idea that our existence is riddled with complexities, with very few things falling into an easily definable category. Dealing with a spectrum means navigating the often overlooked grey areas and grappling with the ambiguity that lies in between extremes.
Join us on March 23rd
