Gather Manifesto

Expose yourself to diversity

The most ground-breaking ideas come from the most diverse groups. Seek out opposition.

Don’t judge

Silence the voice in your head and don’t jump to conclusions. Holding the space for others will open your mind to new possibilities.

Welcome uncertainty

Not knowing what’s going to happen is scary. But leaning into the unfamiliar is the only way to create something truly original.

Trust the process

Life is in constant flux and experiences unfold in every moment. Don’t fall prey to easy solutions and quick fixes. Have faith and stay open.

Expect participation

The era of one-way communication is over. Participatory dialogue is the way forward.

Dare to be wrong

Don’t take yourself too seriously. By acknowledging our failures, we can transcend our egos and learn for the future.

Have fun

Happiness is socially contagious. Saying yes to what intrigues you will make you a happier person and a better team player.

Bring your whole self

Don’t split your personality into “work” and “life”. Everything becomes more interesting if you stay yourself throughout.

Build on each other’s ideas

The best ideas come from collaborate effort and collective imagination. So put yourself out there, the world won’t bite.

Pay attention to power structures

Who is heard? What is overlooked? It is your duty to question the taken-for-granted and listen deeply for the unspoken.
