With Gratitude

This project began in October 2019 with extensive desk research, interviews, a challenge-led creative hack and many conversations. It’s been inspired by and builds on the work of countless brilliant thinkers, writers, creators, activists, designers and change-makers, several of whom we reference in this site and whose work can be found in the Library.

A huge thanks to all of the people who have contributed to this project directly and indirectly, with a conversation, a favour, an introduction, an idea, your time, or your love (if we’ve missed you from this list please shout!):
