ENGAGEMENT | RESEARCH | CPOW
We know that the stories and records of the past matter. They offer insight into our complex histories and the human impacts on this place we share and love.
Stories inspire us to dream and to act. They delight, persuade, provoke, and calm us. They help us to plan. They offer the logic that underpins policy, and they help us understand each other.
We have worked with a wide range of clients — First Nations, individuals, companies, not-for-profits, government — sometimes to document, sometimes to heal or celebrate, sometimes to find ways to move on.
We take ideas from conception to completion, and we work through obstacles along the way. We want to exceed client expectations — every single time, every single job.
We begin our work with clients right where they need to begin, and we take them where they want to go — even if the destination seems foggy or unclear.
That’s the beauty of talk: it allows us to learn what your priorities are, and what our pathway can be.
We are curious and resourceful researchers — and we would love to work with you to connect you with information you need.

Our writing creates future oriented text that is deeply rooted in our complex history — to be shared in public spaces on interpretive storyboards, walking tours, and brochures.
Our Contemplative Practice of Writing (CPOW) program helps people find joy in writing as it invites people to use writing as a path to inner calm and creativity.
