Our Programs

Equipping early-stage social entrepreneurs with the support they need to transform audacious ideas into scalable and sustainable ventures, and change the world.

At the intersection of art and social impact, this nine-month fellowship supports emerging artists with bold ideas of how art and creativity can be forces for social impact.

Each year, Halcyon Dialogue chooses a 21st century topic - think implications of robots for global society or digital privacy issues - then brings together leaders from across industries to discuss and publish their collective thoughts.

An event series featuring visionary women leaders in conversation with one another about the future of their industries.
