Innovation Studio is a two-year pilot project which will facilitate new opportunities for Knowledge Exchange at the RCS. Through a series of workshops, panels, online discussions, interdisciplinary collaborations, and seed funds, Innovation Studio will support creative experimentation, skills development, and collaboration.
Innovation Studio provides focused support and funding to unlock interdisciplinary approaches to local, sectoral, national, and global challenges. It offers our artistic community additional tools and provocations as they seek to expand their sphere of influence and impact.
Three Innovation Challenges, each lasting around 4 months, are the heart of Innovation Studio, which drive the programming and seed funds available to the RCS community: Green Recovery; Placemaking; and Creative Health. We refer to these themes as ‘challenges,’ because they invite us to inquire deeper into the ways we approach them. The pilot structure allows us to work from a place of inquiry – and to reflect intentionally on processes of collaboration.
You can connect with the Innovation Studio through the Lab, Commissions, or through the ongoing programme of events.
