Our Mission

As a think tank, we will provide independent and strategic thought leadership; frameworks and high quality content in addressing today’s societal, industrial and economical challenges associated with Culture, Media and Sport.

Culture, Media and Sport Leadership Board

In June, we will be announcing our priority research areas for the forthcoming years and our Leadership Board for this key area of our work.

Our Webinars

A key part of our work is to produce webinars, providing people from all across the region (and beyond) to provide their insight and expertise to how we can address and tackle some of society’s biggest challenges.  We look forward to announcing further webinars in due course, but here is one we held in 2021; ‘What next for the Beautiful Game?’
