Difference Exchange helps different worldviews consider flux, disruption and emergence.

By placing critical artistic practice in provocative contexts, we connect participants to share insights and skills with fresh disciplinary, social and geo-cultural perspectives. Recent projects address rivers, faith and wellbeing with publications, symposia and artists placements in the UK, Eurasia and the Far East.

The resultant outputs aim to progress the role of the arts, strengthen interdisciplinary networks and exchange creative insights and practical applications. The agency also provides consultancy services for universities, galleries, artists' groups and businesses seeking creative solutions to developmental challenges

Recent partners have included: University of the Arts; LCACE (London Centre for Arts and Cultural Exchange); Kings College London; St Georges House in Windsor; Periferry, Guawahati; Tokyo River Boat Association; Temple of Fine Arts, Kuala Lumpur; Lost Generation Space in Malaysia; Athens Biennale.
