Our Philosophy


Language and literature are media of communication, and a repository of culture, values and ideas.  They are integral to the appreciation, transmission, reasoning and expression of a civilisation’s and society’s ideals and beliefs. They express the Human Condition, comment on Human Experiences, and advance Human Societies.

Our Approach

  • Make sense, construct meaning and effect change in a fast dynamic world.
