  • People & place
  • Fellowship in Action
  • Social innovation

This new monthly online series offers the opportunity for South East Fellows to discover changemakers from across their region, be inspired and learn from each other.

Inspired by the RSA’s origin as an enlightenment coffeehouse over 250 years ago, our new South East Coffeehouse series offers an interactive space to share and develop ideas for social change. Each event will spotlight one South East Fellow, giving them the opportunity to share their work, challenges they’ve faced, the impact they’re having and future aspirations. Following the talks, you’ll be invited to join small group discussions to discuss the topic of the day, or anything else it brings up for you.

Join us for lunch on the first Friday of every month – discover local changemakers, meet Fellows, learn from each other’s work and start your weekend with a spark of inspiration.

You can find out more about our sessions in 2023 and sign up here.

Aspire supports people in Oxfordshire facing homelessness and disadvantage to secure fulfilling employment and safe housing. Established in 2001, Aspire has been tackling the most complex social issues in Oxfordshire for 20 years. They support local people into and towards employment and housing, as the most powerful way to break the complex cycles of homelessness, re-offending and poverty. We'll hear from Chair and RSA Fellow Carol Sweetenham, alongside CEO Paul Roberts, and hear about their enterprise model, challenges they're facing, and innovative ideas for the future.
