Founded in 1947 The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is a not-for-profit research, consultancy and educational organisation engaged in applying contemporary social science to questions and conundrums being asked all around the world today.
Reimaging Human Relations has been made possible through a rich and rewarding intellectual partnership with the Wellcome Library and Canterbury Christ Church University. In addition we have the generous sponsorship of our publishing partners SAGE; Wedlake Bell partners and contributors to the Dynamics at Board Level programme and TIHR lawyers, and a legacy donation from Group Relations in the Netherlands.
The collaboration with Canterbury Christ Church University and the Tavistock Institute Archive Project fits very well with the ethos of community and high quality education, research, and business engagement that inform the activities of the Business School. Two principles, among others, are at the core of our work: the principle of experiential learning and the principle of practical development and application of knowledge. When we started to contribute to the Archive Project it was clear to us that we were contributing to make available the roots of a tradition committed to the social application of social science. An opportunity that will meet the needs of scholars, researchers, students and professionals interested in increasing the awareness of organisational processes and at the same time making a significant contribution in the contexts they operate.
The Wellcome Library is providing both a permanent home for the Tavistock Institute archive, and a point of access for researchers. It is one of the world’s major resources for the study of medical history, offering a growing collection of material relating to contemporary medicine and biomedical science in society. The library is free and open to anyone interested in the history of health and medicine.

Founded by Margaret Bury, East 15 grew from the work of Joan Littlewood’s famed Theatre Workshop, which broke new ground, re-interpreting the classics for a modern age, commissioning new plays from socially committed writers, and creating an ensemble capable of inventing new work. East 15 is now one of a leading group of UK conservatoires and is a member of the Federation of Drama Schools. We are now one of the largest specialist theatre schools in the UK, based in Loughton and Southend in Essex, with a distinguished international teaching staff and over 770 students.
