Noomap’s seed team of holonic activators are the project’s vision holders and work on behalf of the network to co-ordinate development, co-creation and engagement. The seed team is fluid and includes dedicated activators as well as a broader circle of ‘roving’ co-creators who support the project in ad hoc ways. As the project expands, so will the seed team.
All seed team activators are artists in their own right, inspired by their own missions and life purpose.
Noomap’s seed team work in alignment with the values of co-creation and are bonded by friendship, shared intentions and self-alignment. The structure is more akin to being a family than a business – welcome to our field.
