Towards this end we partner with agencies, oragnisations, institutions and other partners to apply for grants and consultancy services. Our partnership contributes to local and (inter)national debates about the role of the Culture and creative Arts in understanding societal cultures, environmental issues, people, places, collective memories and futures, creative economy, popular culture, social justice and development, pedagogic research amongst others.
