Jock's 3C projects contribute to social inclusion, add value to corporate social investment and provide jobs and professional development in the creative sector
Their uniqueness is in the brokerage of unconventional partnerships
THE 3 C's
Jock’s 3C projects put professionals from across the creative spectrum at the centre of community projects (designers, filmmakers, writers, visual artists, community artists, historians, librarians, and academic researchers).
Each 3C project is different. They are customised to the specific aims of the community, business or government partners who are engaged from the outset in all aspects from development to implementation and evaluation. Each project is designed collaboratively. This ensures maximum community outcome, cost benefit, and capacity building.
Wherever possible we employ local creative resources and partner with regional organisations.
We bring creativity to social inclusion and corporate citizenship.
We work with community based organisations, NGOs, government agencies, and social services. We develop community based projects that create links between your core business and other local issues. This opens up new partnerships and additional sources of revenue, achieving a wider distribution of the benefits of the process, thus making the project more attractive for corporate social investment.
While the arts sector faces a time of uncertainty in terms of its authority, its relevance and its sustainability, there has never been a greater demand for creativity or potential for new deployments, ways of working and engagement with communities and business. And yet the discourse around sustainability remains fixated upon patronage and philanthropy: conceptions from the last century, and the one before that. 3C projects go beyond benefaction and create more empowered relations between the arts and other sectors
3C projects are intended for businesses that are looking to develop or improve their community investment. We customise your community engagement according to your strategic objectives. We coined the phrase Key Points of Difference (KPDs) to describe how our strategic approach delivers alternatives to traditional models of sponsorship and philanthropy.
We also work with federal, state and local government agencies, metropolitan and regional, who seek to more laterally link social outcomes to economic ones and address their multiple bottom line with innovation. 3C Projects address social, economic, cultural and environmental issues – we find innovative ways of partnering and cost efficiencies across departments.
Jock has developed scores of projects, here are a few
