What we do
Creative programmes and strategic propositions
We have a track record in fresh thinking, innovative formats and new models that hold popular appeal.
How to attract and engage changing audiences is front of mind for all organisations, cultural and commercial. We’ve had critical and popular acclaim for programmes we’ve initiated, and propositions we’ve built, working with everyday names like the V&A Museum, the Design Museum, the British Council and Google. So we’re experienced enough to know there are no quick wins.
Our deep understanding of forces which drive activity, like reaching new audiences, making the most of content, organisational goals or specific social impact, make us a solid strategic partner to think through your goals. Combine that with our curatorial flair, and commitment to creative excellence, and we like to think we’re pretty unique.
Our own Daniel Charny curated, programmed and art directed this exhibition at the V&A which clocked up 300,000 visitors – five times more than expected – and inspired a generation of makers.
We worked to help a Children’s Museum build a proposition and an approach, a name and a philosophy. The result, a model which joyfully crosses a community centre, a laboratory and a gallery, is currently going from strength to strength.
The sister site of the Central Research Laboratory accelerator and co-working space. First developed for Hayes in West London, it required a completely different approach to engage the existing creative communities in Brighton.
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
