Who we are
SOCIAL CONVENTION is a creative studio and social enterprise on a mission to reimagine the way people experience art and culture.
We exist to nurture artists and audiences, and develop collections of original multi-artform performance work, experiences, and parties; setting them in experiential spaces that encourage the cathartic, the communal, and the transformative.
We believe in unconventional human magic.

Lauren’s past work encompasses a wide range of roles and industries – which may not seem to follow a particular path or structure. Cancer research fundraiser in Australia. Dance teacher at summer camp in America. Barista at Starbucks. But what ties it all together is this quote from Maya Angelou; being the rainbow in someone else’s cloud is my purpose (cheesy but it’s true).
We are committed to supporting the unique creative and cultural heritage of the UK nations, that’s why we have a presence in Wales, Scotland and England. (Bear with us for our multilingual website, coming soon…)
