At The Moment
At The Moment honours the collective strength of womxn who are breaking boundaries, using their voices and embracing who they are. We connect womxn to experiences that celebrate who they are. We share traditions and culture. We curate objects that are rooted in our history but redesigned for modern times.
From Later is a foresight studio based in Toronto. We monitor and make sense of change, developing clear-sighted and judicious futures perspectives. We develop tools and ways of working that augment our faculties for research, problem-solving, and creativity. We explore the capacities of art, science, theory, and strategy to address complex challenges.
