Our work is based on an educational methodology, rooted in the belief that we can create events that encourage and increase engagement. This engagement is what we ultimately strive to measure, and as a company we have studied a taxonomy of engagement that includes seven distinct levels.
When we strategize and ideate for a client , we design and execute all events, activations and campaigns as classrooms. Within that classroom we create customized experiences with a specific curriculum, the end goal of which is to engage participants around making a difference.
We strive to bring the outside world/community into the classroom, and bring the classroom to the outside world/community, since environment based education is proven to result in higher levels of engagement.
