Leave Room for Thoughts (Lrft /lurft/) is an institution. The idea of it was created during a self-run residency when we realized that the philosophy and structure in place reminds of an institutional way of existing.
This website is an online artifact which explores what an institution can be and opens opportunity for expressing interest in future friendships.
Leave Room for Thoughts guides the process of creative exploration by virtue of four princples:
Sense the surroundings and engage with what’s around.Are.na collection
Bring knoweldge from the mind; tangibly into a shared reality.Are.na collection
Shine the light of optimism
Experiment to discover what resides in curiosity.Are.na collection
Lrft aims to provide environments for exploration. We think of these environments as circles of Learners and Educators practicing free will.

Circle of learning (n.) A group of people creating their own conventions to teach, unlearn, and learn.
Processes (n.) A series of courses or programs to explore subject matter.
Movement (n.) The act of exploring circles of learning to share knowledge and create inclusive and open-minded environments.
Institution (n.) A circle of learning that has decided to be established semi-permanently, or as long as their environment is needed.
Educator (n.) A person who fosters and stewards environments for learning.
Learner (n.) A person who brings curiosity to a subject or area of knowledge.
Circles of learning traditionally look like educational institutions, however the only true criteria is that there exists a network of learners, educators, and processes.
