Change is seldom easy and finding novel approaches that will increase the effectiveness of the process, engage all partners throughout and lead to a difference in culture at the end, adds additional challenge. Creative solutions, using arts-based methods, were seen as a positive way to bring about a reorganisation in a large school in a university. Bournemouth University’s Kip Jones and Gail Thomas report on a process that drew on the underpinning philosophy of arts-based ‘Oblique Strategies’. This was undertaken to bring colleagues together innovatively and constructively to be part of the change process.
