Our Inspiration

The Rights Studio is a space where we allow ourselves, and encourage each other, to think deeply, to reflect, to let go of what we think we know, and let go of the need for being right. We, therefore, aspire to embody the following:

The turtle: an ode to slowness

This ancient creature represents wisdom, knowledge, longevity, power, tenacity, creativity, and insight. The turtle is a water and earth animal and is considered by some cultures to carry the world on its back.

Connections: Back to our roots

Everything in the world is interconnected: the universe, the planet, nature, animals, humans and all the issues we worry about. We are connected through our ancestors and future generations. It’s about roots, constellations, webs and allies. 

Perspective: Seeing with new eyes

We have to let go of our fixations on what we think we know, of wanting to be right. We must shift perspective, broaden our perspective and welcome new ones. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes.” Marcel Proust.

The Condor: an ode to vision and insight

The mighty Condor represents vision, power, and devotion. In Native American culture it represents goodness, justice, leadership and wisdom. In the Andes, it’s a symbol of freedom and peace. Referred to as ‘the hunter of the skies’ or ‘king of birds,’ the condor ‘rides the changing currents in our lives’.
