Welcome to Beams and Struts, an online project facilitating dynamic ideas, community development and social action.
It's an exciting time to be alive. Sure, turmoil dogs the human race and may before our time overwhelm us. But despite this and more likely because of it, so much is at our fingertips. It really does feel like pivotal change is at hand, and that each of us in our lifetime may well be pressed into heroic service.
