Connect and Create
As panic and fear spreads around the world, we choose to take a step back and look at the things we are grateful for.
Our Perceptions Warehouse Community's health and wellbeing is always at the forefront of our minds.
We will be implementing all possible measures to keep our community safe and healthy, while still connected.
Our event Nourished Mind 3 is being postponed to a future date (tbc). We will be following the progress of the coronavirus, and making decisions accordingly. It is time for us to put others’ wellbeing in front of our own wants and pre-determined plans.
Our focus for this month has been reoriented towards editing and recording our Perception Podcast episodes.
Would you like to be interviewed?
Drop us an email if so, and we can book you in.
In the meantime I hope you all stay healthy and free of stress.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
― Lao Tzu
Creating an urban community through networking events, while tackling subjects that should be brought to light and giving back to those who need support. Perceptions Warehouse is a fresh look at how to support artists holistically, and the work they make. Our goal is to provide a safe space for creation, interaction, support, and artistic debate.
Our company is based on three aims:
1. We believe all individuals have something unique and precious to teach and give to others, and by presenting them with the right platform, we hope to provide the blocks for them to build a solid foundation. Through workshops and holistic classes we wish to support the artist's minds and bodies, in order to further support their work.
2. We see creation as the great tree of self expression. Roots need to dig deep into the psyche, as the branches reach up into the sky towards greater connection. We value the creative process more than the result or product, and thats why we choose to explore it.
3. As we all mature, life and its uncertainties can affect our artistic confidence. The future can be daunting when looked at it in solitude. We therefore strive to create a sound and strong community of artists who can support each other in the sometimes tumultuous and unclear profession.

Fellowship for the Royal Society of Arts:
Our director has a Fellowship for the Royal Society of Arts in light of her work with Perceptions Warehouse. The RSA is a London-based, British organisation committed to finding practical solutions to social challenges. Founded in 1754 by William Shipley as the Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce, it was granted a Royal Charter in 1847, and the right to use the term Royal in its name by King Edward VII in 1908.
Notable past fellows include Charles Dickens, Benjamin Franklin, Stephen Hawking, Karl Marx, Adam Smith, Nelson Mandela, David Attenborough, William Hogarth, John Diefenbaker, and Tim Berners-Lee.
"The RSA Fellowship is an international community [of] achievers and influencers from a wide array of backgrounds and professions, distinguished by the title 'FRSA'. Fellows are social entrepreneurs to scientists, community leaders to commercial innovators, artists and journalists to architects and engineers, and many more."
