People United is an arts charity based in Canterbury. We are part of Arts Council England’s national portfolio.
We work collaboratively, using creativity to practice and promote kindness that is strong, systemic and transformational.
A thriving, creative society where we are kind to ourselves, each other and the world around us.
Working collaboratively we use creativity to grow the conditions for radical kindness to flourish and make change happen. Together we explore and champion the impact that kindness can have on our lives and society.
Our tried and tested methodology has defined components, such as research and deep listening, co-creation, working slowly, taking risks, sharing and celebrating, and building in legacy - all underpinned by taking care, paying attention and nurturing relationships throughout.
We have identified four key mediators that connect creativity and kindness. When they are activated they are powerful, creating the conditions for kindness to grow and make change happen.
