Register for this event


Over the last two years, FROLIC Studio and a human rights organization partnered together to create a bespoke camera that can be used by human rights defenders to document human rights violations around the world. This unconventional partnership brought together organisations operating in entirely different sectors; one a product design and development studio, and the other an on-the-ground human rights organization. While each had differing institutional objectives and operating practices, they were able to find common ground and the partnership’s end camera product received an honorable mention in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards 2020.

During this session these organizations will share their experiences of the partnership; highlighting some of the challenges they faced, as well as the positive lessons they have learned and new working methods they have developed as a result. The session will encourage participants to share their own experience of collaborating in non-traditional partnerships to foster positive social impact.


  • To discuss and highlight the challenges that come with creating unconventional partnerships. 
  • To discuss with participants the ways in which partnerships across sectors can lead to interesting and valuable innovation.
  • To open up discussion about participants’ own unconventional partnerships and learn from others to find potential solutions to their challenges.
