Ontente delegates are selected following participation in our Whirlwind Labs.
Ontente™ is Contented’s co-production programme which combines innovative digital media productions with personal, professional and business growth. You, as participants and collaborators, are encouraged to test new concepts for products and services while developing your own leadership, professional and cultural skills. We are passionate about synthesising business, creativity and technology to develop new projects, products and services that leverage excellent science and business leadership to address society’s challenges.
Along with our Whirlwind Labs, the Ontente co-productions take a radical approach to learning and innovation. We invite freelancers and microenterprises to respond to a brief set by our partners, working with us to develop ideas for audience development and business growth.

Learning by Doing
The Whirlwind Lab marks the start of a period of preparation where experimental ideas can be pitched and explored in a safe and collaborative environment that’s responsive to new platforms and audiences. We then go into co-production, working with partners in the UK and abroad to prototype the ideas, ending with something we can present to a prospective client.
Contented’s Ontente co-productions have been designed to respond to the personal and professional development needs of individual collaborators. We provide the environment and resources giving you the freedom to pursue your own independent research or group project.
Whether you are developing a new project for your employer, you want to be the next Mike Leigh or Mark Zuckerberg, or you just want to meet people to work with on future projects, Ontente aims to inspire you to take time and space to think outside the box, develop your employability and enterprise skills, carry out research, work on ideas, and learn to operate within new cultures. In times of unprecedented economic, social and environmental change, explore how you can bring meaning into your work.
