We think, create, challenge and experiment.

The Institute offers a uniquely supportive environment where collaborative & interdisciplinary creative practice-led projects can thrive.

It's not unusual to find our creative writers working alongside medics or curators with biologists: we like to blur the lines between disciplines and have a progressive approach to what we do.
