What We Do

Reasons to be Cheerful

Reasons to be Cheerful is an online magazine dedicated to telling stories about smart, proven, replicable solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems. These aren’t stories about how we wish things were — these are stories about how they are, right now. Through sharp reporting, our stories balance a sense of healthy optimism with journalistic rigor, and find cause for hope. We hope to inspire by example, and to counter the media bias towards negative news to support a more accurate perception of the world.

Our readership has turned into a community with our Membership Program, where readers can pay what they can, each month, to receive special newsletters, enter into competitions for prizes and access to special events. We’re hoping to grow further and build a network for people who are as committed to finding clear, precise solutions to the problems in their communities.

Theater of the Mind

Theater of the Mind is an immersive science theater experience that uses a narrative framework to raise questions about who we are and how we perceive the world- or just as often, don’t. Groups of 16 audience members at a time are led through a series of rooms by an actor, combining the work of science labs with immersive theater. “Our minds are theaters and we are the audience.”
