We work by connecting those three ways of understanding the world, to encourage collaborations that shift perceptions and expand understanding. From years of working with people from across many industries, we’ve identified three key ways to enable these exchanges of ideas, methods, and creativity:
- By being a global hub, making it easier for people from different backgrounds and traditions to meet, spark, and work together, we help them collaborate — including via our OKRE Development Rooms, Salons, and Retreats.
- Helping people see the value of collaboration, by telling and sharing the stories of how it goes right, including in our Content Hub. By doing this, we help people across our industries value the diversity of thinking that led to those stories — leading to more collaboration.
- De-risking and stimulating innovations at the nexus of research and entertainment. Check out our Funding Opportunities to see this in practice.
These outcomes form part of our Theory of Change, a foundational piece of work for OKRE which spells out how our work creates the kind of industry-wide changes that we think are both possible and necessary. And while this blog has focused on the implications for entertainment, we’re just as passionate about how research benefits from collaboration, too.
As we continue on that mission, we want you to be involved. Whether you work in the entertainment industries, research or social impact, we want you to join us so we can create stronger links between these sectors and together, create real change. We want audiences and communities to tell us how entertainment can better understand and represent them, so we can focus our efforts. And we are looking for funders who believe in our purpose, to support our ambitious plans.
Get in touch, and see what we can do for you.
