Who are we?
We are Curiosity Lab aka “the Curious Generation” aka “U + I” for short. We are an all-inclusive, intersectional community that convenes around a shared curiosity about the conventions of the world around us. We believe in our potential to foster growth and development through inquiry and collaboration. To us, what's important is not that the entire world is on the same page, but that we are all reading the entire book together. We are concerned with affairs that impact mankind on a global scale. We believe transparency and empathy will lead to understanding and compassion, which—to us—is more meaningful than negotiation.
The idea is that mutual vulnerability creates intimacy.
When we share the tools to create escalating, sustainable, and reciprocal self-disclosure among friends, acquaintances and strangers - we can cultivate a constructive culture of genuine vulnerability and sincere curiosity together.
Our ambition is to stimulate thought and action by nurturing a collaborative, engaging, and inquisitive community. Together, let’s fight back against divisiveness and explore our common humanity.
Inspired by Mandy Len Catron’s NY Times Modern Love essay, and “The 36 Questions That Lead to Love”: we apply the same theory of using increasingly personal questions to increase our love for mankind, fostering empathy and compassion for the "other’s" experience on this earth. To understand each other, we have to lead with listening. We have developed a number of questions to stimulate thought and challenge your preconceptions about your community, your relationships, and yourself.
