Manifesting the Manifesto

According to Wikipedia, "a manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions. Manifestos are often political in nature."

This might coincide with an existing new agency initiative known as Foundational Principles. Though, it's difficult to know for sure because I'm not in the loop, nor do I know anyone who is in the loop. This brings me to my larger question, if engaging in generative dialog will allow groups to co-create things such as a Pinecone Manifesto, then how do we locate the 'uniquley prepared individuals' who hold a piece to the emerging puzzle? How do willing co-creators find one another when they want to self-organize around a particular topic, inspiration, etc.?
