Getting to Maybe: A Social Innovation Residency

December 15, 2015


Social innovation skills are needed now more than ever to tackle the urgent challenges of our times. Complex problems confront individuals and communities in many different sectors. Whether your concerns lie with culture, climate, industry, justice or policy, creating the change we need in the world depends on gaining knowledge and finding new approaches.

Getting to Maybe: A Social Innovation Residency has been designed for the change maker with a deep readiness for ‘catching a second wind’ in order to fuel your personal calling to work for change in very complex contexts. You will have an innovative project already being somehow tested and that it is ready for further refinement and development. Through intense focus and exploration, you will enhance a whole spectrum of personal capacities, including your self-awareness and your understanding of complex system theory. By taking a deep dive into your personal, as well as professional, worlds, new revelations about your self and your work will lead to the development of new strategies for impact. If you are a leader from the private, social benefit, government, or the philanthropy sector(s) with a passion and vision for change, you are invited to apply. We also specifically welcome applications from innovators within arts and culture, and from Indigenous communities.

We invite nominations of, or direct applications from, enthusiastic, self-reflective, committed individuals. This is an outstanding opportunity for change makers passionate about tackling complex problems and holding the capacity and the authority to catalyze groups of individuals to join these kinds of efforts. We are particularly interested in leading social innovators who also have experience with indigenous leadership, creative practice and/or environmental stewardship.
