The rights studio

While we sometimes describe ourselves as a creative hub, The Rights Studio is, in fact, an invitation. An invitation into a new way of thinking and doing, one which begins with questioning everything we take for granted. In particular, how we contribute – or think we contribute – to a better world. We will not have all the answers, but we want to ask better questions.

The Rights Studio is a space for new thinking and new conversations. We seek to approach rights and art by questioning current approaches to these fields.

It is a space where we allow ourselves, and encourage each other, to think deeply, to reflect, to let go of what we think we know, and let go of the need for being right. We are in the pursuit of insight and clarity.

We seek reflection and understanding, and to get there we go back to our roots, we seek wisdom, we draw inspiration from nature, indigenous cultures, and world philosophies.
