In the wake of a string of divisive political moments and tragic headlines, David Byrne began collecting positive and inspiring stories from across the globe. Archiving these stories into several categories, ranging from 'Civic Engagement' to 'Urban/Transporation', Byrne has engineered a participatory platform for amplifying diverse expressions of optimism, celebration, and joy.
