Our vision for the world is to ensure all people have the means to create healthy, vibrant, and just communities. And as a values based organization, our projects and partnerships work toward this collective vision through five core values.
“It is easier to build strong children, than to repair broken men.”
- Frederick Douglass
Rather than spend time trying to fix a broken system, we at The Urban Studio are working to build a new one. Our work leverages interdisciplinary art and design expertise and resources to give power to the voices of the next generation.
We nurture a different relationship to engagement so that those who are most affected by design decisions are seen as key members of the design team.
