The mission of the RSA (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) is to enrich society through ideas and action. They believe that all human beings have creative capacities that, when understood and supported, can be mobilised to deliver a 21st century enlightenment. They work to bring about the conditions for this change, not just amongst their diverse fellowship, but also in institutions and communities.
