Better connected and more creative futures are possible when we step out of usual ways of operating.


We work with organisations, brands, teams and communities who believe in cultivating the curiosity of their people.



• We can host Excursion workshops wherever you are. Usually they begin and end in a place of work (if you have an office). If you are a remote team – we can look into host spaces for your time together or run it as an online experience.

• The middle section of the experience involves getting outside and seeking inspiration in the outside world guided by a series of prompts.

• We have held Excursions for as little as 10 people – as many as 60. The session will involve both solo and group work. They are perfect for team building.

2-4 hours is most effective. There are modular elements we can add and remove to suit your set up. 

Each Excursion follows a 3 part structure – guided by a theme.


Through prompted conversation and playful experiments we create meaningful connection between participants.


We lead you beyond your usual working environment unearthing inspiration, ideas and answers that are so often hidden in plain sight.


Guided by our framework and collective insights, each Excursion concludes with a co-created moment, shaped by all participants.

Theme examples:

  • A journey through world-building power of Storytelling.
  • A nature connection adventure exploring Rewilding.
  • A deep dive into the subversive world of Collage.


what's the format?

• A Quest usually takes place over One Month. An optimal amount of time to feel immersed in the experience and learn valuable lessons.

• Led by one of our Quest Guides, we piece together the following elements to suit your set-up; interactive workshops, collaborative tools and creative prompts in-between live sessions.

🌀 An organisation looking to improve inspiration, wellbeing and connection.

💭 A team who want to learn innovative creative practices to increase their problem solving and idea generation abilities in conscious ways.

📍 A place-based collective bringing people together around a shared theme relevant to where they live.

⚡️ A mission based community galvanising their people and developing ideas for furthering their cause.

🌐 A remote team looking for ways to create connection, shared purpose and have fun in online spaces beyond work.

We can take three routes:

  1. We work with key stakeholders to identify a theme for your Quest that will explores new ground while addressing your strategic objectives.
  2. Guide your Questers through a process of ‘Theme Dreaming’ where you collectively decide the theme for the Quest.
  3. Choose a Quest from our theme archive

A Quest is a scalable experience and therefore so is the cost attached.
We’ve designed Quests for groups as small as 10 and as big as 100 people.

Due to the modular nature of a Quest – it can be shaped to fit your needs in terms of format and budget.

This is a creatively dangerous place to be. 

Rare and unusual ideas are all around us – to find them we must change the way we look. 

Follow our Questing principles, Excursions unearth new perspectives, ways of working and turn city streets into inspiration playgrounds. Pe

"How rare to find a true experience— not simply a talk - something that teaches, demonstrates, beckons you to participate outside of your own little universe, that brings joy, that is poignant, that fuels your creativity and invites you to ask deep questions of yourself, with hilarity and love!”

"While Creative Quests helps encouraging active *making* it also helps to reshape how I *think* creatively, the connections I make and how I see the world. This is hard to replicate independently. It's like the best kind of thought-provoking book club -- just a bit weirder (in a good way)"

Excursions and Offsites.

Experiences that take you out of your usual working environment – in search of inspiration in the wild.

Using our eclectic insights from dozens of Quests, we will playfully remix your thought processes, creating a stronger bond among your team members and with the world around you.

Our Excursions & Workshops revolve around a central theme, a north star for our explorations. We collaborate with you to select a theme from our collection, one that stretches beyond your usual realms of work to ignite new perspectives.

Leave with a revitalised team, buzzing with creativity and a completely refreshed set of innovative approaches to take back into your day to day work.
