Placing culture at the heart of social change

Place

We repurpose empty spaces and adopt a sustainable circular economy approach to our projects. We reduce wasted space, resources, time, materials and use knowledge and local people to help reactivate spaces that serve a purpose and respond to local needs

People

Communities inform everything we do. From the culturally curious, to creatives and companies who seek a place to grow. We have access to a global community of visionary, highly motivated thinkers and doers, from unknowns to well-knowns.

Technology

Our 360 degree disruptive approach uses digital technology to create impactful immersive experiences that introduces cutting edge futuristic technology to activate audiences, create dialogue and stimulate new ways of thinking.

What we do

The Cultural Assembly are change makers

We help raise public awareness of new ideas, places, products and practice by engaging local communities through collaborative participation and events.

We have worked with businesses and individuals in advertising, education, entertainment, entrepreneurship, marketing, media and technology start-ups. We help grass roots groups to large organisations, embrace a more sustainable approach to reaching their goals developing authentic customer-focused solutions tailored to the bespoke needs of the audiences you want to reach.

Project Management

We provide dedicated cultural agents to support every aspect of the place experience and foster an outstanding community. We work collaboratively with clients from architects to local agencies and help teams to communicate their place vision; define the experience and value of public spaces; and create customised models of place governance and management to support the development of thriving communities.

Place Activation

We design and deliver strategic place activations, events and creative campaigning that make a measurable impact on communities and customer experience. We design activation strategies for emerging properties to help transition them from where they are now, to where they need to be. We understand the complexity of activating sites that are under construction or re-development and have pioneered an approach that enable space to help transform the communities they serve from before your project starts throughout the project lifecycle.

We have a passion for places. We can help you uncover captivating insights that will greatly improve your decision-making.
