We are Working Assumptions, a non-profit foundation based in Berkeley, California, working to amplify and encourage conversation about humanity’s daily routines — work, play, service, and family — and how these daily routines offer us the opportunity to connect with others, share common ground, and open up to transformative change. Through commissions, grants, and education programs, we encourage photographers, artists, students and other creative people to examine the push and pull of these daily routines and the assumptions around them. We intentionally seek broad and diverse audiences for this work, placing installations in unexpected and non-traditional venues, in addition to gallery settings.

We are committed to equal opportunity employment and to creating a supportive work environment for employees of all backgrounds.
