how we started
The Ruckus Collective started in 2016, when our founders Krish and Rowan met at the back of a bus (seriously). They were on their way to the station after (separately) speaking at a creative event which they both felt was lacking something. They got talking, and then planning, and then working, and Ruckus was born.
what we do
We organise Ruckus Retreat - an annual residential retreat, which combines a wide range of workshops, creative time, hand-picked feedback groups, and evening social events. Whether you’re looking to socialise with fellow creatives, finish your latest project, or find the inspiration to start something new - Ruckus has a path for everyone. You can read more about the Retreat here.
who we are
Rowan makes videos on YouTube about LGBTQ+ issues, feminist advocacy, and pop culture - this has spilled out into “IRL” talks, panels, and workshops across Europe and America. Currently managing Penguin Platform - Penguin's online channels dedicated to 14-18 year olds - she uses her personal and professional platforms to open conversations and build communities. Rowan can be found in the kitchen, not making you a sandwich.
Krish currently works as a PR, Community & Social Media professional, They are committed to using their platform to up diversity in every field they can.
