THE POSSIBILITIES ARE IN THE MARGINS.

Creativity and innovation happens where you least expect it - in the margins, the fringes of society, within seemingly insurmountable problems and overlooked communities. 

THE NEW QUO elevates undiscovered creators and the stories behind their creations

The New Quo is your place to find inspirational stories and products from underrepresented communities. Each story showcases how limitations and personal experiences can be the greatest sources of creative inspiration, even against great odds.

MANIFESTO FOR THE CULTURALLY conscious CREATOR IN YOU

We question the norm and rally for acceptance of people regardless of race, gender, nationality, religion, or sexuality. We use our talents to open the world to love and possibility.

Our past solidifies us, but doesn’t define us. We are blunt and bold about wrongs, but turn our energies towards what is right. We validate the experiences of the marginalized, and show the world we are more. We are creators, we are innovators, we are movers. We love our history and use that to fuel the fire for our futures. We experience different lives but share common bonds.

We defy odds, we break barriers, we take risks that we almost can’t afford. We dance on stereotypes and champion identity bending trends. We push a society that isn’t always supportive of us to be better for the generations after us. Our lives and our work are intertwined - we use them to leave our positive marks on this Earth.

Our vision is multi-colored, multi-cultural, and always present.

We are The New Quo.
