for people and nature.
Design and education for the global majority.
We envision a society that holds interdependence between people and nature as its highest value and liberation as a collective responsibility. In an era defined by climate catastrophe, we recognize the urgent imperative to redesign all human activity. Our methodology applies ancestral wisdom to scientific and technological innovation to turn segregated systems into holistic ecosystems. We embrace plurality to decentralize solutions that repair and nurture global-majority communities impacted by colonialism.
Understanding that culture is a powerful driver for policy and corporate practice, we collaborate with partners across fashion, media, business, and civil society to build an equitable, climate-positive society. Together, we drive systemic change defined by a regenerative ethos, transparent supply chains, and rigorous analysis of material life cycles.
Information accessibility is one of three pillars of our work to advance collective liberation––along with racial equity and the redistribution of power and resources along the socioeconomic spectrum. Although we are still in the early stages of our journey, our organization has invested in hiring a team of ASL interpreters for every single live event and making all of our website and social media content accessible for Deaf, Hard of Hearing, Blind, and DeafBlind people through subtitles, alt text, and image descriptions.
Slow Factory implements Universal Design principles, which requires us to design in such a way that everyone can access our content and program offerings. In our work to center voices and perspectives of the global majority, we recognize the intersection of race and disability. We believe that equity and representation at this intersection improves intrapersonal and interpersonal communication among society at large.
