Activities

Currently we are working on the following projects:

Research project: Connecting rural areas to the creative economy

This collaborative research project with University of Manchester and Cheshire East Council is exploring the opportunities and barriers for working in the creative sector in rural Cheshire. The project will identify how local authority and related agencies support creative industries, the skills that local organisations and entrepreneurs require to engage in creative economy-related work and how to find creative talent in rural communities. We are using a HTC Vive (virtual reality) kit as an engagement method visiting community events and festivals over a 6 month period (Jan-Jun 2018). More info

Future visioning: now close your eyes…

We provide future visioning workshops on an ongoing basis for people who want to engage with their instinctive imagination about what the future may hold. So far we have run sessions in university and community group settings and in organisations. We have a Visioning Lab YouTube channel for people to use at any time and we are always looking for opportunities to run more sessions with groups of people. If you would like to run a visioning workshop with your team or community group, please get in touch

Creative facilitation: enabling collaboration

We support the development of collaborative working with academics and partners providing strategic advice for idea development, literature reviews, workshop facilitation and guidance on creative process. Currently we are supporting collaboration between Women Asylum Seekers Together (WAST) and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) and the development of a Walking in Cities project with Smart Cities researchers at Manchester and mobilities researchers at Leeds university and international NGO Walk21.
