Think Make Tanks Belief:
We tend to forget that our perspective is only our own. We can only see and hear what we know. The vision of Think Make Tank is to invite people to question and experience perception: our own and others’.
We believe that there is a disconnect between us, the gaps are widening. How do we begin to bridge between each other’s worlds? This begins by stepping into each other’s shoes. We want to playfully engage people in alternate perspectives using art and experience as a mode of connection.
For an intentional community collaboration is required. Collaboration involves hours of conversation, time to develop trust, openness to each other’s ideas, and the will and commitment to actualize them.
Think Make Tank’s process is to transform concepts into experiences that can be accessible, playful, and open.
