The journey towards liberation is never-ending. On this Juneteenth, we at Ummo are taking the time to reflect on the difficult path towards freedom and solidarity. As the medieval Persian poet Saadi reminds us, we are all on this journey together. 

Brand with purpose at ABX

Thought Leadership, Events

At ArchitectureBoston Expo (ABX) 2020, Ummo will get to share our thoughts on the topic we care most deeply about. Join us at a workshop, moderated by our Philip Barash, entitled “Brand with Purpose: The Creative Economy Finds Its Voice” on Wednesday November 4, 1:30 – 3:00 pm. We are stoked to be joined by our favorite fellow-branders from Moth and Gensler, as well as friends from the Boston Center for the Arts and MAAM, the new museum at MassArts.

New Year anew

Events, Found Objects

Sure, there’s Gregorian New Year, when we pop all the corks; Julian New Year, observed by Boston’s populous russophone diaspora; Lunar New Year, whose colors radiate heat; and Rosh Hashana, which gives us an excuse for apple picking in Vermont. In the drab days of March, though, we get down with Nowruz — a way to cheat winter and honor the many cultural traditions that come together at Ummo.
