The aim and ethos was to encourage people to connect and nurture themselves, each other and the planet through a shared experience of creation and creativity, reminding readers to live joyfully in the small moments, sharing stories of difference and highlighting the modern relevance of ancient ideas. Circ. 25k + distributed nationally and International.
what was created?
YOKE connected a tribe of people: ethical human beings searching for meaningful connection and eager to find ways to make positive social change in the world through merging deeper and creative thinking and an exploration into what it means to be a well-being.
YOKES conscious readers are inspired by real-life content and want to explore and live in a community filled with a renewed inner life and social imagination. They are forward thinking, environmentally aware and health conscious.
As storytellers that bring about change through exploring different and exciting ways to collaborate, YOKE shares diverse cultures and values, along with a shared adventurous civility that is needed for our time.
Aiming to reaching beyond the transactional advertising approach of traditional media and seek out the right brands and organisations that share the same ethos, philosophy and vision: the power of unity and creativity to inspire transformation.
long-valued creative partnerships
FRINGE UNYOKED was an ongoing collaborative Creative Partnership with the Sydney Fringe Festival (2015–2019), that successfully created tailored workshops, live music and spoken–word events, panel discussions and long–table dinners.
The aim was to broaden the conversations that nurture creative confidence, get people in their bodies and out of their head, and encourage conversation and debate with audiences and artists alike.

creation through community gatherings
These regular gatherings are a living breathing continuum of YOKE’S ethos: to increase positive impact and expansion with our hearts, minds, and efforts.
supper UNYOKED aims to invoke and build community through conversation at intimate sit-down dinners, to listen deeply to special guest speakers on different topics. Located at YOKE HQ, its aim is to explore more deeply what we could become if we took up the mantle of co-creation collectively.
