Rose is a dreamer, a questioner, a doer, and a creative. She is fascinated by systems and making sense of them – from bodies to organisations, to the natural world, to global socio-cultural patterns. She believes that systems change begins with personal transformation, that it happens when we enter into new relationships with ourselves and with others, and that the by-product of those relationships is an agency and responsibility to work towards just, caring, and beautiful futures.
Rose is a fellow in Social Innovation, having completed the Getting to Maybe Social Innovation Residency at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. She enjoys the creative tension of ideas, people, and structures that are seemingly at odds. In those spaces of complexity and ambiguity, she is always amazed at the latent potential that emerges.
These days, Rose can be found tromping around South East London looking for inspiration in the form of green spaces, coffee, and flaky pastries. As a white, cisgender, middle-class, able-bodied woman, she is constantly learning and unlearning how to hold space for all people, in all their messy, wonderful human-ness.
