RIO – the Real Ideas Organisation – is a pioneering social enterprise supporting people to build better futures.
We apply our imaginative, ethical business thinking across a wide range of sectors, from schools, education and learning to regeneration, culture and creative commercial ventures. Organising great ideas into reality is what we do.
In 2012 RIO was appointed as Arts Council England’s Bridge Organisation for the South West, as part of a strategic England-wide piece of work to connect young people with cultural experiences. In July 2014 Arts Council England extended RIO’s tenure as Bridge for the south west to continue connecting young people with great art and culture up until March 2018.
