Platform Thirty1 Logo


We use creativity to work on generating agency and power, so that those we work with can tackle any societal, environmental, political, personal or cultural problem that is important and impactful to them, their family and/or their community.

Our core principles:

  • Creating change: striving to make a positive difference

  • Being context specific: proud to be rooted in people and place

  • Having integrity: doing the right thing

  • Unapologetically authentic: considerations for the complexities and qualities at play
