What we do
For over 250 years the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) has been a cradle of enlightenment thinking and a force for social progress. Our approach is multi-disciplinary, politically independent and combines cutting edge research and policy development with practical action.
- We encourage public discourse and critical debate by providing platforms for leading experts to share new ideas on contemporary issues, through our public events programme, RSA Journal and RSA Comment.
- Our projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today.
- Our work is supported by a 27,000 strong Fellowship - achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive social change.
- Our House, the historic home of the RSA, is an environmentally-friendly and flexible space that can cater for a variety of events.
The RSA is registered as a charity in England and Wales no. 212424 and in Scotland no. SC037784
