For artists, creators, makers, entrepreneurs, revolutionaries, and idea-havers like you.

At FORGE, co-founded by Chie Morita + Greg Taubman, we believe that how you work matters just as much as why you create and what you want to make. And when we say “make” we believe the sky’s the limit. Whether it’s a fresh product line, a much-needed service, an innovative design concept, a push for justice, a new script, a board game idea, an immersive restaurant concept, or a sandwich for lunch, FORGE believes in the power of process, and in building the skills, systems, plans, and practices that will carry you not only through your next set of goals, but your life’s work as a creator.

With a 2021 FORGE Fellowship, we invite individual makers and small teams (of no more than three) at any point in their career or process to spend a year (February through January) digging in, getting curious, and defining success. Learn to articulate your work to fellow innovators, concoct creative solutions to today’s conundrums, and retrofit your process with guidance from FORGE and leaders in your field.

We invite folx with diverse backgrounds, lived experiences, and modes of expression from anywhere in the world to incite creative friction and re-envision the inherited systems and accepted norms of our fields. Together, we will foster an ever-growing community of confident creators who are unafraid to ask for what they need, actively challenge implicit and explicit bias, support each other with generosity and enthusiasm, and ultimately, change the understanding of what we can do in the world.

You bring the spark. We light the FORGE.
