service design for systems change 💫🍄🌱
hestia.co is a growing service design agency + digital arts space working on occupied treaty 13 territory.
we recognize the sovereignty of the Mississaugas of the New Credit, the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, and the Huron Wendat nations that we live + work alongside while on land currently known as canada.

we're creating a community of thinkers + tinkerers moved by collaboration, mutual aid, and civic justice.
informed by emergent strategy and radical friendship, we're working to train, design with, and inspire people to invest in local systems change for their community.

we believe rural + suburban communities need support for equitable citizen design as much as urban spaces do.
in addition to traditional agency work, our goal is to work with local nonprofits, municipalities, organizations, and nations towards methods of collectivist care.

it is our intention to work for and with IB+POC, 2SLGBTQIAP, neuroatypical, crip + disabled folks living in this area, who often require spaces of gathering, affirmation, and community when living in a colonized society on occupied land.
so if you're a creator, an activist, a community member, or you just want to learn alongside us, we'd be humbled to have you join us.
