Tim Joss is the founder and Chief Executive of Aesop.

The UK’s arts sector is world-class and wide-reaching. It transforms people’s lives and has the potential to solve social problems and improve people’s health and wellbeing. Aesop’s mission is to unlock and realise this potential. Aesop takes society’s needs and problems as the starting point, and incubates evidence-based, cost-effective, sustainable solutions which use high quality arts. Aesop also contributes to the development and sharing of knowledge about the arts and society. As well as hosting conferences and showcase events, it convenes the arts enterprises in health and social care group, an action learning set for arts organisations already being commissioned, and it delivers programmes to link arts activity with health economics.
