The cultural sector’s relationship with resources is out of kilter, and we feel a responsibility to address this within our working practice.
This is about looking at our design process holistically, identifying areas of potential impact and making changes at a systems design level. We use our experience and design skills to address these considerations thoughtfully, often doing more work upfront to allow us to act and design in a minimal, effective way.
Working sustainably doesn’t require us to lower our creative ambitions but it does require us to think differently about them. Budgets and project plans don’t always provide for all resources that matter. Devoting more resources to people power, for example, allows for the research and deep thinking needed for better, sustainable use of materials, and more broadly to develop new approaches to work.
We are particularly interested in working with clients who are equally committed to doing things differently, and we want to collaborate to find new sustainable ways of working together.
