We believe that supporting each other, building communities, establishing relationships and befriending issues, people and contexts is essential to all cultural and creative practice.


We are committed to equal and inclusive structures and practice; a breadth of voices and experiences are involved at every level enabling us to meet our aims with integrity, depth and relevance. 


We seek out new and emerging platforms, technologies and strategies; our activities are driven by a progressive ethos.


We learn from students and graduates, who help us shape and direct our agendas, discussion and direction. As educators we are learners. 


We aim to place care at the centre of what we do, recognising interdependencies and mutuality. We see care as a capacity and practice as cultivated, shared and resourced on an egalitarian basis.
