The creative toolkit Ketso, a spin-off from research under an ESRC-funded CASE studentship and ESRC Postdoctoral fellowship, has been used since its launch in 2009 in the UK, Peru, Bangladesh, Rwanda, Southern Africa, Australia, USA, the Netherlands, Finland, Malta, Germany and Portugal.

Dr Joanne Tippett developed the creative toolkit to stimulate discussion and creative thinking, encouraging diverse groups to work together. Ketso consists of colourful branches, leaves and other materials which can be placed and moved around on a felt workspace, in order to encourage creative and effective engagement.

The toolkit was shortlisted for the UK Sustainable Development Commission’s Breakthrough Ideas for the 21st Century.
