We’re an action research lab that works to reimagine different ways of doing + being


We work with partners, clients, and communities to explore the big questions, forming collaborative ecosystems around projects and ideas that drive society forward.

We work through a

post-colonial lens at the intersection of psychology, systems and futures thinking to:

 

1) dismantle the psychological and structural barriers that disconnect us;

 

2) collectively reimagine and design alternate systems and supporting structures that enable us to thrive.

Our work is varied, but always: intentional, exploratory,

collaborative, transdisciplinary,

and absolutely necessary.

 

Here are our current focuses. If you’d like to get involved, or discuss any new ideas, we’re always up for a chat.

HOW CAN WE NURTURE THE RADICAL IMAGINATION WITHIN MARGINALISED YOUTH?

The radical imagination breaks free of the paradigms that have, for centuries, curtailed the spiritual evolution of humanity, and fostering this is essential if we are to solve the collective challenges facing society. Yet, while imagination is so acutely tied to the issue of privilege, our greatest challenge remains: how? How can we best create space, within and outside of existing institutions, to cultivate the radical imagination? What practices nurture and sustain it? How can we successfully harness our collective imagination to make society a more just, equitable, and joyous place? If you want to collaborate or support this project, email will@andbeyond.earth

#REIMAGINEFASHION

HOW CAN WE
COLLECTIVELY REDESIGN A RADICALLY DIFFERENT FASHION INDUSTRY? 

The fashion industry needs a profound transformation if it is to exist in our changing world, but where are we aiming for? What alternate visions can fuel the transition? And perhaps most importantly — how can we redesign it collectively? With a living ecosystem of practitioners, thinkers, fashion professionals and more, we are expanding the possibilities of the fashion industry beyond colonial values and structures, to question how the industry can instead be a microcosm of a better world; a tool for healing, thriving, connection, and true creativity.

AMY FOSTER-TAYLOR 

(She/Her)


Amy’s an ex-marketeer who has seen how psychology is used to exploit and flip-reversed this knowledge throughout her Masters and beyond, as a superpower for good. Amy’s not afraid of getting deep and you’ll either find her asking difficult questions to CEOs, or having a good old DMC with mates or her journal.

WILL BULL 

(He/Him)

Will has a first-class degree in biochemistry, but confesses to know nothing about biochemistry. Instead his passions lie in all things positive change: from the spiritual to the systemic, and everything in between. He loves poetry and rap and will chew anyone’s ear off who says they’re not the same.
