Prospero World is a Registered UK Charity (1163952) aiming to enrich society through the arts, to empower change through education, collaboration, and action. We do this by teaming with other groups and individuals, by producing events, presenting research on exceptional established and emerging arts charities, creating awards for outstanding artists committed to social change and building networks to support the arts.

Our flagship programme is the Creative Industry for Social Change Awards (CISCA), a carefully-tailored, integrated awards and leadership programme dedicated to empowering and supporting emerging leaders in the arts and creative industries. Our Awards currently operate throught Africa, Europe and the UK.

We were founded in 2007 and since then we have worked throughout Africa, India, South East Asia and the Middle East. ​Today, with a decade's worth of research and experience informing our work, we focus solely on the Arts. Please join us!

In The Spotlight: Shining a Light on the Arts for Social Change

Prospero World is always on the look-out for new projects that pioneer the use of the Arts for Social Change. We are inspired by the idea of addressing the problems of our time through the exchange of knowledge, by developing thoughts and challenging existing perspectives. Accordingly, our In The Spotlight series is inspired by the remarkable individuals and organisations we meet along the way and is shared here to provide a flavour of our research.
