Elective is a home for the curious

We are ready to engage again—with ideas, with each other, and with what it means to be human.

(And, tbh, we kinda missed eating microwave ramen.)

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT

We like to change our minds

What we believe

Better people make a better world. We are at our best when we make it a habit to pique our curiosity. 

What we do

We create experiences for curious minds to engage with ideas and with each other. 

Why it matters

We ask humanity's biggest, oldest questions to better understand our world today.
