Run an event

A great way to connect with like-minded people, share the work of the RSA, and creatively address social challenges in your area. Funding and support is available to enable you to contribute to the RSA’s mission and local activities calendar. We have a range of tried and tested event formats to follow if you're looking for inspiration.

Setup a new network

Networks can become a force for positive social change and regular activity enables Fellows to work collaboratively on a theme or build relationships locally. Your Local Area Team are on hand to support enthusiastic and passionate people to harness the collective knowledge, skills and creativity of our Fellows.

Develop a project

We believe everyone should have the power to turn their ideas into reality. Our Catalyst programme encourages your innovative thinking and potential to solve pressing societal problems, offering grants, support for RSA Kickstarter crowdfunding, and help with utilising the expertise within the Fellowship.

Fellows are becoming ever more central to helping us drive forward the changes required for a 21st Century Enlightenment. I encourage all Fellows to consider developing activity in their local community which speaks to both the quality and rigour of our ideas, and our belief in creativity to effect change.
