Ecology Of Talent

Our initial goal with the 22blocks/Ideas Lab collaboration was to establish a platform for talent development reaching out to artists in various stages in their careers: young, emerging, established and in-between. Although the initial goal hasn’t changed, we now believe that the vast ecology of talent existing in the Brighton area has the potential for growth beyond that of individual artists. We believe that we can provide a focal point for the creative community in the area without loosing our focus on the needs of each individual.

With the involvement of Gary Pleece of Pleece&Co, our potential and ambitions grew even more as an additional branch of agency excellency was added to the existing mix. Gary’s contribution expands beyond that of a marketing and branding expert, his social responsibility projects have added a whole new layer of meaning to our collaborative venture.

We see Presuming Ed’s, the area around it and the people that gather there, as a potential social system based around creativity that can be focused around social responsibility, sustainability and business oriented thinking that nurtures our community.
