Fostering interdisciplinary creativity and innovation through
the arts, humanities, social sciences, and technology

About Us

Leonardo21 was co-founded by Eugenia S. Kim and Loretta E. Kim with the intent of facilitating creative research, mentoring aspiring creators of all ages, and promoting DEIB (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).  We are a for-profit company with a social entrepreneurial spirit based in Hong Kong since 2016. After several years of providing consultation services and equipment rentals, we are streamlining our activities to focus on producing written publications and multimedia content. This includes original books, films, experiences, and short-form content. We will be continuing our mentorship activities in the areas of research and writing.
