The Institute for Everyday Democracy is a place to exchange ideas, join in discussions, and generate a body of thought about how we participate in our democracy. Through our Image of the Future podcast, we host conversations that collectively explore ideas that prepare us for the future. Such a collective exercise is not about what we like or don’t like, nor is it about the “me” or “mine.” It is a much deeper and courageous exploration of what ought to happen.
Pomegranate Center is shifting the paradigm around how people work together. Through our unique inclusive engagement model we help communities discover their ability to spur change and develop their capacity for authentic collective collaboration. By leveraging the power of Place - where people live- we create the conditions that demonstrate democracy at its best, with stories that change from “us and them” to “we.”
Wondering where that heartwarming Woods at Golden Given video came from? How about the teaser trailers for the Image of the Future podcast? Those are all thanks to the talents of our new communications intern Fahad Aldaajani. Fahad joins us from the University of Washington’s CommLead program where he is earning a Master of Communications in Digital Media. He brings to Pomegranate a talent for photography, an interest in narrative filmmaking, and an openness to always learn something new–great news for us as we explore the world of podcasts!
At the start of 2017, friend of Pomegranate Nancy Nordhoff pledged a $37,000 challenge grant to support us in our critical transition period. That means we need to raise money from our supporters in order to match the pledged funding.
