CuriousWorks – Reshaping the Future through Storytelling

CuriousWorks is a non-profit organisation working at the intersection of arts, community and technology. We enable individuals and communities in the margins of Australian society to tell their story powerfully and sustainably. We seek to increase social, cultural and economic capital by building storytelling and leadership capacity.

CuriousWorks collaborates with communities to give them a voice through theatre, film and various forms of innovative digital art. We enable stories, empower storytellers and build cultural leadership capacity in communities who are misrepresented and marginalised in Australian society. CuriousWorks is committed to working deeply in communities over an extended period of time.

  • We increase social capital by building local networks in order to reduce social isolation and improve relationships between diverse groups.
  • We increase cultural capital through grassroots and professional artistic production to address mainstream Australian culture failing to reflect the depth and diversity of Australia.
  • We increase economic capital through education and skills development to increase productivity and participation, and address high socio-economic disadvantage.
