Somewhere Good: SHIFT Fellowship
Created and currently executing an entire $50,000 fellowship program for new consumer social platform, Somewhere Good from the ground up.
SHIFT (Shaping Holistic Innovative Frameworks of Thought) is a one-year fellowship program designed to create an ongoing feedback loop of innovation and exploration between the Somewhere Good product, team and communities. For our first quarter, SHIFT fellows explored questions surrounding possibilities of building online community structures dedicated to trust, accountability, and care.
In 2021, five fellows were invited to participate in a year-long process in which we engage through critical inquiry and dialogue, research, feedback and published works of thought.
Throughout the year, fellows were asked to critically think, converse and write about digital ethical dilemmas and communicate with our product, design, marketing and engineering teams to co-generate the frameworks for building better, safer, more thoughtful digital social platforms.
