Our Story

Enduring Curiosity was founded by filmmaker Grey Gowder as a way to create immersive education and outreach opportunities for local students in his community through his films and the work of other filmmakers.

 

Grey approaches education and community resilience through an interdisciplinary lens blending intersectional environmentalism with the nuances of history and culture to engage local partners and promote equity and regenerative communities. By promoting curiosity and learning at a young age with creating opportunities for life-long learning and stakeholder engagement for the wider community, Grey hopes to help empower the next generation of community leaders, scientists, teachers, storytellers, and citizens to build the world they dream of living in. 

Enduring Curiosity is a small educational non-profit with bold ambitions. While our team and capacity may be currently limited in scale, we do not intend on that being our status quo for long.
