Manifesto
EVERYTHING IS UNFINISHED
Is there anything in this world that isn’t in motion? From cosmos to atoms, humans to opinions, we are but tiny specs on long dotted lines, infinite and incomplete, as this very list is.
LOVE THE PROCESS
Embrace mistakes, failures, detours, wanders, accidents, experiments. Counting on them as blessings helps us take greater risks and brings our journey to more exciting places.
SUBJECTIVE EVERYWHERE
In life’s moving mosaic of bias where someone’s blindspot is somebody else’s focus, we can’t be our best without active listening, ignorance admitting, and context seeking.
MEANING IS HOW NOT WHAT
Fluid, nomadic, emerging: meaning is inseparable from the system that builds it. Focus less on the parts to better see the relations. Less flatness, more difference. Less nouns, more verbs.
CONTRAST IS THE SOLUTION
Apparently, it’s natural to avoid conflict. It’s also wrong. What we need is better, smarter, kinder conflict that puts our differences to work to engineer models that suit everybody.
WE ARE THE ARTIST
As Joseph Beuys points out, we’re all capable of meaning, revealing, transforming. This makes anyone, anything, anywhere –everyone, everything, everywhere!– responsible for change.
BORDERS ARE POROUS
Countries, humans, ideas: permeability makes endless possibilities. But the more lines and boxes we invent, the more dangerous echoes and bubbles we create.
? (UNKNOWN)
New things can only happen if we leave them space. Uncertainty allows for unsprouted ideas, unencountered options, undiscovered paths, and others we haven’t met yet.
MAKE YOUR OWN METRICS
Invent your own rules, your own tools, your own platforms, your own algorithms. And if you can’t, at least keep in mind that the most valuable things can never be counted.
TREASURE TIME
We can’t cheat it nor hardly buy it and it may well be our most universal currency. Let us honor time’s wisdom and pass down its lessons, cherishing memory and celebrating age.
PLAY HYBRID
Multi-inter-intra-meta-multi-micro-macro-pre-post-poly-hybrid: give it a name if you must, but play with borders enough to enjoy something different while still feeling yourself.
SEED CURIOSITY
No matter the issue, this one philosophy cannot sour or bitter. Grow understanding but bury prejudice. Glean serendipity and harvest empathy. Learn from fear and cultivate curiosity.
About us
UNFINISHED
We are a vibrant community of global thinkers and makers. Part festival, part talks, part art, part undefined, it is an experience in constant evolution. The name UNFINISHED reflects our core belief: that making the world a more conscious place is a continuous work in progress. That we should never stop growing and questioning ourselves. That we should be willing to take risks and learn from failure. That is why we bring together a wide range of exceptional people from all backgrounds and age groups, offering them radical venues and ever-evolving gatherings for honest dialogue, knowledge-sharing and the creation of lasting connections. UNFINISHED surpasses the thresholds of classic event structures and bridges the gaps – both geographical and cognitive – between people, between generations and between practices. And beyond these bridges, we delve into what sprouts in between disciplines and anticipate what is not yet defined as one. We thus celebrate curiosity as the single most important shared value in the quest for change across fields and borders.
