Our key themes

Public Services & Communities

We enable people to take an active role in solving problems and shift power to people and communities. We advocate for greater social, economic and political connectivity to achieve this.

Creative Learning & Development

We seek to close the creativity gap, working with learners, educators and leaders to develop new approaches that enable everyone, regardless of background, to generate original, valuable ideas and make them happen.

Economy, Enterprise & Manufacturing

We ask how economic institutions and policies can be designed to reward and support a meaningful and creative life, provide economic security for all and preserve our planet’s ecological systems.

Featured project

Work matters. It is the crucible around which we form our identities, make a living and build relationships. We grumble about it, we eulogise about it, we dedicate our lives to it.
