What's Grounded Space? And Why?
We’re a collective of community organizations, social service agencies, and InWithForward – an international team of designers, anthropologists and reflective practitioners. After more than a decade building teams to solve social problems, we’re finding it’s not just about any one project or solution. It’s about building permanent capacity to make, test, and embed new practices.
Grounded Space is our answer to the capacity challenge. It is Canada’s first collective of social organizations pooling resources for continuous experimentation, or what we call Social Research & Development. Amazon, Google and most private sector superstars spend 3-30% of their annual budget on research, design, and development. It’s time the social sector has the same infrastructure to re-imagine what is and co-create what could be.
