we believe that innovators are those who have created space for themselves in the midst of a world designed to exclude them. they are the ones in the acts of creating culture and making history in a space DESIGNED to write them out of it.
these are the originators who do not allow their marginalization to keep them from bringing work to the world that has inspired all.
we celebrate those whose hospitality to their inspiration superceded their living in a world inhospitable to their presence. we recognize that those experiencinG such inhospitality are those who will one day impact all of our lives.
Our challenge is... how to create the most dynamic hospitality experience for culture-creators whose existence itself endures the more abrasive cycles of innovation?
