Too often, national discourse around regional inequalities focuses on "Big Projects", or structures of power.

Instead, RSA Fellow Tris Brown wants to co-create something that promotes a hundred small-scale innovative projects. Projects that can start small, scale up and be replicated across the North of England. Projects that need a catalyst. Projects to change a street or change the world.

From children's book schemes in Preston to arts collectives in Chester, from homeless hostels in Doncaster to record labels in Redcar, the North has got some great innovative ideas, and Tris wants to see if you can help him create more.

About the speaker:

Tris Brown is a regional development professional, having worked for the North West Development Authority, Liverpool City Council, and in both the charitable and academic sectors over the past 20 years. His experience of government policy has led him to conclude that a grassroots-led approach to innovation is necessary to complement the more structured and institution-based work that is too often the focus of government.
