A SOCIAL SCULPTURE AGENCY WORKING AT THE INTERSECTION OF INNER WORK AND CREATIVITY
A SOCIAL SCULPTURE AGENCY WORKING AT THE INTERSECTION OF INNER WORK AND CREATIVITY AT ALL SCALES
We've been supporting collaborations for positive impact since 1996.
The team at Magenta Studios has worked with thousands of leaders on many different types of projects in over twenty countries.
Over the years, we have gradually developed an approach that we think of as a holistic art and science of change. While serving projects around the world, we've also pursued rigorous creative and personal transformation disciplines — a unique combination that has ultimately enabled us to include the "inner" dimensions of thought, feeling, and will in our work in large scale projects.
We founded Magenta Studios to bring our approach a new generation of change makers and social entrepreneurs, and we continue to pioneer cutting-edge approaches to societal and personal transformation. We support large scale, groundbreaking social sculpture projects, and we’re excited to make our offerings public through our WorldMaker course.
Here are some highlights from our practice.
We are currently helping an alliance of organizations launch a multi-stakeholder initiative designed to help Zimbabwe transition to a peaceful, prosperous future after the abrupt resignation of Robert Mugabe, who was president for 37 years. At the heart of the project is "The Baobab," a space for healing, capacity building, and supporting the nation's most relevant social innovations.
One of our very first adventures took place at Castle Borl in Slovenia. An ancient castle overlooking the Drava River, Borl was a "grail castle," a sacred site in the middle ages. We helped organize festivals, rebuild the castle, and host thousands of leaders from around the world in a context of intercultural meeting, artistic activity, and peace-building.

We co-founded Reos Partners, a pioneering social change consultancy that helped grow and define the work of systems change and multi-stakeholder collaboration. During our years at Reos we worked along some of the best practitioners in the field, with whom we continue to collaborate today.
CHILD PROTECTION LAB
From 2009-11, we helped leaders from government organizations, social services, lawyers, judges, communities, families, and other actors increase the effectiveness of child protection efforts in the state of Victoria, Australia. Our multi-stakeholder effort was entirely unprecedented and sparked significant change efforts within and across the sector.

We hired Magenta to help us more fully engage our workforce, leaders, and other stakeholders in our ongoing service to the greater Vancouver region. They helped us devise efficient, powerful ways of innovating, learning, and creating across our organization. We’re deploying them in all our work, big and small — with wonderful results.
Tanya Sather - Executive Co-Director, Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion
We partnered with Magenta to co-lead our development program for senior executives in one of Australia’s largest telecommunications companies. The Magenta team played a highly significant role in curriculum development and overall leadership of the program. Both our client and we as Reos were enormously pleased with the quality of Magenta’s contribution to the project. Magenta understands both the big picture as well as the nuts and bolts for successful inner leadership development. Highly recommended.
Robbie Macpherson - Director at Adaptable Leadership & Partner at Reos Partners Australia
Magenta provided a sensitive, personal and supportive approach to enhancing our strengths while inspiring us to go beyond our expectations. Their accessible methods equipped us with tools for implementing beyond their program.
Shalini Agrawal - Director at Center for Art and Public Life at California College of the Arts
I worked with Magenta over a number of months both as part of a senior leadership group exploring our personal leadership and also with one on one coaching. My experience was transformative. I was challenged to think extremely differently about the world, myself, others and my business. On a personal level I resolved many issues that had been holding me back. I have used the tools that I was given with my team subsequently and have received similarly amazing feedback from them.
Julian Clarke - Executive Director, Human Resources, Global Enterprise & Services and International & New Business, Telstra
I was part of a team serving a complex scenario building process. We had excellent collective calls with Magenta and also individual coaching sessions. I found those individual sessions to be extremely useful, helping me to connect to my source, improve my communications and co-working practices, and align my attention with my intention. Every minute of each conversation was so full of meaning!
