THE POWER OF SERENDIPITY
The power of serendipity is limitless within a network of like-minded, creative people. What will the new RSA coffeehouse achieve?
Here are a selection of stories from Fellows which provide a glimpse into how the new coffeehouse could achieve a 21st century Enlightenment
It all started with a chat over a glass of wine with some Fellows at the House. The conversation centred on combining ideas about social enterprise and prisons, and so the ‘social enterprise prison’ was born. The House featured as the hub for several subsequent meetings to develop the initial ‘blue sky’ idea into a workable project.
Ever since I discovered the RSA, it has been a place where I have met people, shared ideas and made things happen. This was the “home” for many concepts I co-developed. It opened doors to other opportunities because of the diversity of people, know-how, views, ideas… an invisible curated place! This is where you might just overhear one word of another person’s conversation and then suddenly, you’re through the “rabbits’ hole” and you enter “Wonderland” where the world changes and great questions are asked.
