With a goal to enable everyone, over time, to contribute to the collective
knowledge to enhance a wider scope of views. Including views which don't
have any academic platform. Overcoming the age and financial boundaries of

creative exchanges exist beyond traditional academic or formal frameworks,
but are qualifiable by the mutual agreement and consensus of the attendees.
