Our extended network
ColourSpace is an arts social enterprise that’s helping organisations look good, feel good, and do good with art.
It does so by providing an arts rental service that sources artworks created by local emerging artists and displays it in corporate, communal, and residential environments. To keep those environments fresh and dynamic, ColourSpace changes the artwork on a regular basis, transforming staid environments into dynamic spaces, enriched with art.
Our original Co-Founder of SEN / LUP Global, Scott Ko, Founder and Director of ColourSpace, vision is to use art to connect and engage people in a way that technology can’t. In an increasingly technological and data-driven world, ColourSpace is continuously breaking new ground in terms of the impact of art on the community.

GT RecyclingRecyclers of shrink-wrap and plastic Our relationship with GT Recycling started back in 2015 while we were looking for alternatives to disposing of shrink-wrap, we were put in touch with GT Recycling. GT Recycling was such a pleasure to work with, we couldn’t forget them when we wanted to launch SEN originally! So we invited them to also be a speaker at our launch night to outline the work that GT Recycling was doing to help promote their recycling of plastics and cardboard, an ever increasing global issue since China banned importing recycled plastics. We strongly believe in supporting local initiatives and the wonderful work that companies exactly like GT Recycling do.
