Designing a Think Tank for America’s national Center for Craft, Creativity and Design
In 2017 we had a thrilling invitation, to convene a think tank involving the biggest thinkers on America’s craft and maker scene and take a deep dive into possible formats for the future. This was a production, with a 2 day event facilitated and documented and a publication authored and edited.
This piece found a large audience in the US, but also served to inform the CCCD’s own development plans in North Carolina, as they expanded their site in Asheville.

WHAT WE DO
We’ve curated exhibitions, delivered activity programmes and publications, and shaped the purpose and identity of the organisations and institutions that house them.
Facing uncertain futures, we’ve been speculating about cities and high streets, museums and shops, communities, work and education.
We’ve designed workshops and facilitated conversations, enabling big, complex and/or diverse groups of people articulate and shape their ideas
We create tools, formats and programmes, that motivate and inspire learners to unlock their potential and shift their horizons
