2.0 Mission Statement_
We aim, simply, to facilitate and support the production of educational resources that build, encourage and enable people to live life more joyfully.
We believe in the process of creativity (the journey being as important as the outcome) and are deeply invested in practically educating others in this philosophy through our work – believing in people and the building of relationship as our primary drivers.
We aim to champion the tangible expression of creative ideas within the wider Arts as a fundamental way for us to add value to each others lives.
We believe that people are the most precious thing on the planet. Each soul has story to tell and we are committed to help individuals tell their story through art, literature and music and to giving others access to these stories.
We believe in our planet and looking after it. Our aim will always be to make excellent products that do not harm or take advantage of others, or the natural world around us.
Our aim is to enrich the lives of others through what we create.
We aim to make our work accessible to a wide variety of audiences, believing that everyone deserves to be treated fairly and as equals, and we aim to work with, employ and have contact with people from all parts of society without discrimination.
We aim to undertake both commercial, charitable and voluntary bodies of work – with any profits being fed back into the development of new projects.
