Over the past few years we have begun to revitalise our vision, purpose and impact as an experimental project.

In an increasingly uncertain world, we see a growing need for progressive places that ask important questions and collaborate with others to explore, design and test new models and frameworks that help our society and planet to flourish.

The Dartington Project is unique. It has been designed to bring together learning, the arts, craft, ecology, enterprise and social justice as connected, interactive parts of a whole system. Through this open, experimental model we aim to explore a framework for a richer, more fulfilling and many-sided life.

We will be a lab, a ‘think and do tank’ and a living classroom for a more open, unified and sustainable society where everyone matters.

We have been a global pioneer in experimental learning for almost 100 years

We have a unique resource and place to test ideas

We have arts, craft, social justice, ecology and enterprise projects that are already showing a way forward

We have a progressive legacy and ethos with extraordinary convening power

Now we want to collaborate with others to incubate real change and explore the tools that we need for our

society and planet to flourish.
