We work with flows, systems and relationships. We pay as much attention to what happens between things as the things themselves.

As a backbone organisation, BLC aims to act as a trusted neutral player that is building a shared vision that many stakeholder partners can agree on. We work collaboratively and in a strategic way. So that those two goals do not conflict, we communicate clearly and define our goals clearly.

So that the work we do can regenerate people and place, we direct our actions to be generative: opening up to new possibilities and views, while maintaining boundaries. We aim to stay open and curious in shared enquiry.

We are in the business of difficult conversations at a time of rapid change. That means we practice personal resilience by not taking conflict to heart, but seeing edges as where the new emerges.

Our way of working is what binds us together, is visible to the world around us, and is our strategy for change. We do not have any one methodology, though we can point to many influences and inspirations for our work.
