2017 also saw FINCH create two social good initiatives; Creatable and The Lion’s Share.
CREATABLE, a STEM based creative technology school curriculum that ignites passion and self belief in teenage girls as they prepare for the future of work. It’s seen a 625% increase in D&T elective enrolments at participating schools and is currently working with brand partners in the roll out of an internationally available digital curriculum platform.
THE LION’S SHARE, founded by Director Christopher Nelius and FINCH, launched at the United Nations General Assembly in 2018 with partners the UNDP and MARS Corporation. It is a simple but powerful idea that sees the corporate world make a small contribution each time an animal appears in their advertising, raising money for wildlife conservation and animal welfare. Sir David Attenborough is special ambassador, alongside UNDP ambassador, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
Most recently FINCH was recognised as 2018 regional production company of the year at the London International Awards and named as Australia’s AWARD Award Production Company of the Year.
