Instead of criticising what’s going wrong, we wanted to imagine a world where these problems had been elegantly solved. Many of us are from creative backgrounds and wondered if we could use our existing skills to show a glimpse of something else, something better.

We often get asked to define our ‘mission’. We’re motivated by things like climate change and overconsumption, but that’s falling into the trap of talking about what we’re against, not what we’re for.

We believe in the beauty and wisdom of nature, and the power of compassion as an organising principle for humanity. And cats.

Our collective is open to anyone regardless of background, skill level, or nationality. We run regular meetups in London and are starting our first chapter in New York in early 2018. If you’d like to come along, or to run a Glimpse chapter in your own town or city, please drop us a line.
