About Us

Lack of opportunity and limited social mobility destroys lives, leaving its mark on communities, relationships, aspirations and self-worth. We work to create a more equal and just society, where each individual can be fulfilled in their own terms. We believe that little about the future of society is inevitable. Bound by our shared humanity, we believe we collectively have the power to shape the societies and communities we want to live in. The Young Foundation harnesses the power of disruptive innovation to address the causes of inequality. We create new movements, institutions and companies that empower people to lead happier and more meaningful lives. We work with the public and private sectors and civil society to strengthen their positive impact on communities. Join us. Welcome to Social Innovation Exchange. +acumen - +acumen chapters are deeply committed volunteer-led groups learning and sharing Acumen Fund’s principles and approach to help create a world beyond poverty – a more inclusive and sustainable future for all.

The report is called “Artistic Interventions in Organisations: Finding Evidence of Values-Added“, was written by Ariane Berthoin Antal and Anke Strauß, from WZB Berlin, and provides a thorough analysis of the value that artistic interventions can add to organisations. The other two reports can be found here. In the wake of the Creative Clash project closing (and relaunch in a new fashion) in Brussels, we are releasing two new reports on the subject of artistic interventions in Europe. The reports are “Artists in organisations - mapping of European producers of artistic interventions in organisations” by Anna Grzelec and Tiago Prata, TILLT (summary available for download here), and “Support-schemes for artistic interventions in Europe - a mapping and policy recommendations” by Anna Vondracek, KEA European Affairs.
