Do it yourself or do it together.
We don’t do things for young people, with do things with young people. We nurture communities that can achieve amazing things through creativity and collaboration.
We believe that diversity leads to innovation, inspiration and stronger communities. We support and encourage people to try new things, visit new places and meet new people. We are committed to tackling inequality and promoting inclusion.
Listen and reflect.
We listen to understand and we reflect to learn. We value creativity and curiosity as much as knowledge and experience.
We ask rather than assume. We challenge pre-conceptions about young people, about art and culture and we challenge ourselves to be aware of and breakdown our own prejudices.
We encourage experimentation and risk taking as a route to innovation and when things don’t go to plan we reflect, we learn and we move forward.
