Introducing the &yet Community

June 2nd and 9th sold out; register for the June 16th adventure!

The Internet has created the world’s most unsafe and heartless communities in the same place we’re building our society’s future.

Our most sensitive people, our most marginalized people—the people we need to lead us into a more empathetic future—are being crushed into the ground.

Is this the future we want to create?

In the words of Tina Turner, we don’t need another hero. We need entire armies of leaders. We believe tiny leaders build on tiny leaders to create tiny powerful fearless societies.

What will the future we create look like?

We decide.

What we’re building:

&yet is a community of possibility for compassionate people. We’re bringing together our favorite people on the Internet to create an intentional, ongoing online community.

What to expect:

  • One month onboarding adventure: Because we want to be intentional about how we build our community's culture, this adventure is the first step. You can think of it as a fun and interactive onboarding experience that uses original story, music, film, and illustration to help us learn about ourselves, each other, and how to be in community together.
  • Ongoing community: After you've completed this expedition, you'll be invited to the actual community where we'll all be hanging out. The only way into the community is through the adventure! :)
  • Ongoing surprises: We’re collaborating with artists and interesting people (and each other!) to make fun things happen.

The time commitment:

The onboarding adventure is 4-6 hours of reading, listening, art, and activities. This is spread out over about a month. The ongoing community has optional interactive things that invite your participation for a couple hours a month.

The code of conduct:

Joining means you agree to uphold our community’s code of conduct, so we can provide a safe, inclusive, and harassment-free experience for everyone.

Joining at a later date:

If the June 16th onboarding adventure doesn’t work for you, keep a lookout; we’ll have more in the future. (It might be a little while though.)

Cost and cancellation:

The cost is $39/month, which covers our costs to pay all the great folks who’ve worked and are working to make this a wonderful experience for everyone. You can cancel any time.

&yet Community Scholarship

Anyone from an underrepresented group in need of financial assistance is invited to apply for our community scholarship. (This includes, but is not limited to: women, people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, disabled people, and people facing economic or social hardships.)

This community will not be the same without you.

And we mean that in a very real sense. We strongly believe every new person should shape the community in some way, and we want you to be a part of it with us.

Will you join us?

Enjoy this post? We'd love to invite you to join our mailing list, &you, where we connect with our community and share the latest we're learning.
