The Next Renaissance

The Next Renaissance

“The world stands at the cusp of a rare opportunity to shift our systems and way of thinking, planning and acting dramatically as a mood is emerging that transformation is possible. 

The solutions are in the air and renewal can be in the making. Perhaps a rebirth – a Renaissance.

Yet that emerging Next Renaissance cannot be grasped by a business as usual approach. 

Our challenge is clear – shifting our economic order and way of life that is materially expansive, socially divisive and environmentally hostile as well as our increasingly polarized political climate. 

Crises always provide a gateway from one world to the next and this is what our Next Renaissance platform seeks to encourage and support. 

Our focus is especially on the role of the cultural and creative sectors as we believe they are a catalytic driver to both imagine possible futures as well as to help make them happen.”
