The collective’s values include courage, dignity, coherence, intellectual honesty, social solidarity, integration, justice, loyalty, honesty, respect, humility , gratitude, and passion.

The group’s goals are to bring attention to the technique of analog collage, and to make it accessible to all, even the most fragile parts of society.
