We define culture as “agreed upon values, beliefs, and attitudes within a system”. As such, this directory allows listings for cultural linguists, cultural centers, educators, performers, designers, or other professions from cultures as well as subcultures which includes people and organizations who support Endangered Languages, LGBTQ+, Persons with Disabilities, Gender Equity, and other lived experiences.
Mission: We strive to improve the accurate representation of global cultures, subcultures, identities, languages, and lived experiences and their portrayal in media, arts, entertainment, education, and other spaces by providing access to knowledgeable individuals who have personal experiences within their cultures.
Vision: We will be the most comprehensive directory for advisors to advance the representation of their culture and language.
Values: We believe that representation matters and people of specific cultures, subcultures, and lived experiences should be involved in the interpretation of that experience in media, arts, entertainment, education, and other spaces.
Purpose: We will bridge the gap between diverse representation and the specific lens of the mainstream culture by creating educational resources, career opportunities, and awareness regarding the importance of appropriate cultural representation and the protection of endangered languages.
