AESOP is an arts charity and social enterprise

AESOP’s proposition is:

The UK is blessed with world-class arts.
Arts programmes are on the periphery of programmes working to achieve positive social change.
The work is almost entirely limited to ‘arts push’ – arts organisations taking the initiative with limited impact evidence, sustainability and growth.
The arts have the potential now to add ‘society pull’ – start with challenges/unmet needs in society, scan all artistic options and create something suitable, effective, cost-effective, sustainable and capable of growing.


AESOP defines arts inclusively to embrace popular, folk, classical and contemporary forms across combined arts, crafts, dance, digital arts, design, environmental arts, film, games and interactive media, literature, music, photography, puppetry, theatre and visual arts.
