Meet the Team

talking, walking, creating – together

One of our core aims is to bring people together to share different ways of thinking and seeing. The PLACE Collective will follow a direction that’s largely determined by what its members bring and what others ask of it – but we have a group of people at the helm. Loosely termed as the ‘advisory board’ this brings a range of skills, experience and outlooks. We will be working behind the scenes to ensure PLACE is on track with a set of goals, and always stays open minded. Here’s a short introduction to who we are.
