We have partners in over 50 countries. One of our strategic objectives is to grow our international CPC community. We do this by nurturing networks of associated academics, artists, activist and practitioners, along with talented non-professionals, students, teachers and designers across the world. We have esteemed partners in academia, business and non-profit organisations working with us to champion cultural, design, social, economic and political policy.
