Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts
Founded in a coffee shop in Covent Garden in 1754, the RSA has a wealth of notable achievements and Fellows in its 250-year history. These include RSA Medals, awarded annually to international thought-leaders and innovators. OurArchive preserves historical records relating to the RSA's activities and administration and makes them available for research.
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. Their 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.
- Their projects generate new models for tackling the social challenges of today.
- Their work is supported by a 27,000 strong Fellowship - achievers and influencers from every field with a real commitment to progressive social change.
- Their House, the historic home of the RSA, is an environmentally-friendly and flexible space that can cater for a variety of events.
I really like their talks brought to life through RSA Animate.
