The Plenary Collective is a community of change makers and supporters committed to an informed, compassionate, and engaged society.

 
 
 

Who should join The Plenary Co.?

Never wonder “where to start” again. 

Most people we talk to agree on the problem. We don’t want our society to be polarized, misinformed, or competitive. We want to make a difference, but so often we don’t know where to start. That’s where The Plenary comes in.

As a member, you'll get access to resources that provide the skills and inspiration you need to make an impact in your community. Not to mention the perks. There will be perks.

Stay engaged everyday. The Plenary's priority is to make it fun and easy for you to explore controversial and complicated current issues, co-discover and build skills with your social circles, and learn directly from powerful leaders making a difference in the world. We help you bring growth, changemaking, and reflection into your everyday life.

Champion the power of art, science, and story to change lives. More of a cheerleader than a ringleader? By joining The Plenary, you can sit back and feel proud of the contribution you're making to support better learning resources for our grassroots network of changemakers. Or you can take center stage and use our tools to plan something for your world. Either way, you are the secret sauce and we're just here to help.

Color outside the party lines. We're creating a space for people tired of the status quo and us vs. them politics. The Plenary welcomes anyone who believes in our mission to build a better world through our shared values: openness, compassion, equity, curiosity, and community.

Cultivate curious communities. Members of The Plenary are provided with the support they need to create more opportunities for people to learn real world skills, explore nuanced evidence, and engage with critical current issues. Whether it's your personal friend group or your entire community, we give you roadmaps for impact.

 

 

We have the potential to change the way we explore the issues that matter most.

We need your support to reach it.

"It's Only Human"
To move forward as a society, we need to understand how our biases impact ourselves and others. This upcoming show will feature art, science, story, and installations that shed light on how our biases shape our lives and what we can do about it. Your membership will help us bring this show to towns and cities across the country, where opportunities like this are rare.
"Unintended"
A sustainable future for humans on Earth means understanding how our behaviors disrupt and destabilize fragile ecosystems. This show brings together evidence, practical skills, interactive demonstrations, and little heard stories from around the world to help participants wrap their heads around these issues and the real world choices that can make a difference.
