HOW WE WORK
World Culture Open (WCO)’s various projects are made possible by the
participation of creatives who share our vision.
For each project, the cycle of different creatives gathering to collaborate takes place naturally. These creatives are independent participants with unique areas of interests. They include freelancers, cultural planners, organizations, event managers, students, professors, researchers, entrepreneurs, artists, and more, all of whom engage in different ways ranging from, for-profit to , non-profit to, volunteer work.
“In an ecosystem, interconnected organisms thrive without one holding power over another. A fern or a mushroom can express its full selfhood without ever reaching out as far into the sky as the tree next to which it grows. Through a complex collaboration involving exchanges of nutrients, moisture, and shade, the mushroom, fern, and tree don’t compete but cooperate to grow into the biggest and healthiest version of themselves.”
