Our vision is of creative young people with liberated minds, a passion for life, and a humble curiosity about others; young people with a sense of purpose and self-worth, who are active agents for change and justice – in their own lives, in their communities and in the wider world.
Our mission is to facilitate young people to use creativity and culture as tools for exploring the world imaginatively, for making meaning, creating their own values, developing their sense of justice, and building a sense of belonging within the community.
Exploring life creatively and collectively, making meaning and nurturing a permanent state of enquiry all lie at the root of our creative and cultural engagement.
Imagination is the infinite tool that drives our creativity. By liberating our imagination we can conceive new possibilities and transform our world and ourselves.
Justice is having all our rights respected and needs met.
We nurture creative and constructive ways of voicing difference and dissent, of imagining what a just world would look like and seeking to develop our own justice-focused practices.
Belonging is feeling safe, included and valued.
Rooting our work in the lived experiences of the communities we serve and belong to, and by placing care at the centre of our practice, we work to build a culture of belonging.
