Cultured Mongrel believe that through dance and the benefits of connecting with creativity we can generate more effective, efficient
and sustainable solutions to the issues faced by society today. This is not a gimmick, we have experienced these benefits first hand both
as individuals, in local communities and through the work we have done both nationally and internationally.
Through our Social Innovation strand we intend to create working methodologies that can be the basis for replication anywhere. We are willing to
hold our hands up, make mistakes and share these to hopefully save anyone else the trouble of making them! Although
we do not claim to have a fixed answer we believe we can learn to ask the right questions to help support an ever-changing society.
Many of the projects we wish to undertake would not be possible without a strong sense of collaboration and determination, due to the scale of
their ambition. If you are interested in collaborating, run similar initiatives or even simply believe you have the same set of values please do get in
touch, we would love to talk and see how we can build something stronger together - even if it takes a little while!
