Everything we do is rooted in co-creation and embedding young people in the creative and cultural sector from grassroots engagement to strategic leadership. We recognise the value and expertise that young people bring. We are committed to paying them properly for their time and insight, and listen deeply to what they have to say.
We live our practice and embody this model of co-creation. We enable young people to realise the change-making qualities in themselves while interrogating traditional notions of what it means to be inclusive and effective in their work.
We’re a solutions-focused agency that is steeped in creativity while engaging with social justice issues. We question existing structures, amplify the voices of those who hold the least (less) power, champion transformative approaches to leadership and challenge the status quo. This is because our practice is rooted in anti-racism, decolonisation and care. We focus on active listening, being prepared to take risks and go on a journey together without fixed outcomes. Reflection and evaluation are embedded throughout all processes ensuring we can be responsive and agile. Others may see us as argumentative dissenters but our emphasis is always on how things can be done better.
