Founded in 2002, the hub develops new thinking and practice in the music and wider creative sectors. We combine our own practice with consultancy, and like to work on projects that excite us, and enable others to meet their potential. Our entrepreneurial think and do tank approach marks us out from other consultancies and public sector agencies. We enjoy learning, and sharing what we learn with our partners, clients and peers.
