About Real Ideas

Welcome to Real Ideas. We are committed to making positive social impact through our five business units: Real Immersive, Real Art Make Print, Real Pathways, Badge Nation and Nature and Neighbourhoods. Each of our business units has a unique focus and purpose, but they are all driven by the same core values: creativity, innovation, and social responsibility.

Real Art Make Print is an art, crafts, and making community at Plymouth’s Ocean Studios, with affordable studios, exhibition space, creative coworking, events and workshops for families, artists, and craftspeople.

Real Pathways helps people find their way. Our support is designed to develop, encourage, and challenge, wherever people are on their journey.

Nature and Neighbourhoods helps create better, greener neighbourhoods, powered by the communities that live there – regenerating people and nature. Through our programmes and consultancy services buildings, highstreets, neighbourhoods, and services are transformed – solving problems, and creating opportunities.

Badge Nation is the home for organisations who want to make a positive difference using digital badges.

Real Immersive connects people with immersive technologies. From our ‘state-of-the-art’ 360 dome at the Market Hall in Plymouth, we produce immersive content, offer facilities, training, and opportunities, growing the creative tech community and increasing use of tech for good.

We are proud to be a social enterprise that puts people and planet at the heart of everything we do. With our diverse and talented team, and our strong network of collaborators and supporters, we are excited to create change and make a real difference in the world.
