Celebrating History.
Inspiring Tomorrow.

It’s about looking at something familiar with fresh eyes. Opening our minds. Seeing possibilities by seeing what others saw. Feeling connections with the people who came before us. Being inspired by the stories that things of old hold for us. This is not about studying history, but more about enriching ourselves by gaining a new perspective on the context and confluence of our collective. Investigating the creation of history to influence our role in creating history. It’s about engaging our senses on this journey. Making us think and feel and see – not reading and reciting. Perhaps it’s changing how we learn, so that we can change what we know, and ultimately what we do. We believe perspective breeds perspective, and we want to incite our collective to make history.

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

Marcel Proust
