Arts and Society has emerged from the RSA’s programme of the same name in 2014.

Arts and Society builds upon the body of work each of us has been doing in the fields of social change and the arts. We act as a connector and intermediary. The role of the intermediary is far more than that of a trusted and skilled broker; it also involves translation from one working practice to another and seeing the gaps where connections will enable sustainability. In our case, this is through anchoring these connecting spaces in the arts.

This approach is illustrated in these projects with:

Building new cultural networks

Critical friendship for public services

Arts based action research
