‘I would suggest this: my working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight.’
(ITALO CALVINO. ‘SIX MEMOS FOR THE NEW MILLENIUM’. 1998)
We are intensely aware of the huge transformation in wider culture that has significantly shifted the demands made upon creative enterprise. Our ambition is to share the intellectual assets of the academic world in supporting creative practice and creative education to respond effectively to these new paradigms.
We listen, discuss, write, teach, learn, challenge, design, develop, deliver and then…in essence, we help.
Our structure consumes minimal resource, we are light, responsive, permeable and collaborative. We have no front office, no back office: no office, and we locate where the need for CHORA is located.
In Theory we return to its etymology ‘To observe and speculate upon.’
