Hello, I'm Eleanor at something good, something useful!


something good, something useful uses creative community consultation to connect those initiating regeneration projects with those affected by them. We help strengthen relationships between local people and architects, developers, local authorities, housing associations, charities and arts organisations.

something good, something useful adopts a positive, creative approach and works as a neutral platform to collate public responses to social projects. We present the results back to our clients in beautiful, accessible, engaging and ‘ready-to-share’ packages from e-books to short films, enabling service providers to listen to and engage with their service users more effectively.

something good, something useful was founded by socially-engaged artist Eleanor Shipman as she was struck by the powerful role of art in enabling, provoking and encouraging honest dialogue on a range of subjects – from local regeneration, to the cultural identity of Londoners or what it means to be happy.
