The Knowledge Quarter (KQ) welcomes a further five organisations as partners, bringing together over 85 cultural, research, scientific, business and academic institutions both large and small under one umbrella. The KQ is delighted to welcome:
Camden Spark is a charity with a vision for all children and young people in Camden to benefit from equal exposure to a cultural education and have access to the fantastic creative assets of Camden and London. Their aim is to give all children and young people living, or being educated, in Camden the capacity to access the breadth of high quality cultural and creative experiences around them so that they develop their talents and interests to progress into further education, higher education and employment, in the cultural and creative industries and beyond.
in2scienceUK is an award-winning charity which empowers students from disadvantaged backgrounds to achieve their potential, and progress to STEM and research careers through high quality work placements and careers guidance. in2scienceUK exists because students from low-income backgrounds face major barriers when pursuing their interests in science, including a lack of experiences outside of school, knowledge of degree options and understanding of the university application process. This leads to low participation in key STEM subjects
Humanists UK is a charitable organisation that exists to promote understanding of humanism as a non-religious approach to life and bring about a world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. Through their community work and online publications, they bring non-religious people together to develop their own views and an understanding of the world around them. One of their organisational mottos is ‘Championing ideas for the one life we have’.
The Aga Khan Foundation UK seeks to improve the quality of life, enhance self-reliance, and promote pluralism in some of the poorest and most marginalised communities of Asia and Africa. Established in 1967, it is distinguished by its long-term, community-based approach for the benefit of people of all faiths and backgrounds in the communities it serves, especially women and girls. Its activities enhance agriculture and food security, promote early childhood development and access to quality education, improve health and nutrition, advance economic inclusion, and strengthen civil society.
New London Architecture (NLA) is London’s independent centre for debate, discussion and information about the future shape of the capital. Their year-round programme of events, exhibitions and research addresses all the key issues affecting the built environment professions and the city and drives the debate about London’s future. They provide a platform for our broad network of professionals, politicians and the public – all those with a stake in London’s built fabric – to meet, share knowledge and help shape a better city.
