Creating the space to imagine

Fellows come from all walks of life and our goal is to help them lead Humanity through the challenges of the Twenty First Century.

The Intersticia Fellowship was born out of the challenge which John O’Neil gave to Anni Rowland-Campbell in 2013.


John co-created The Good Life in 2007 as the Silicon Valley version of the Aspen Institute, and he saw the potential for Intersticia to seek out a group of people whom she could support, nurture and encourage as emerging leaders for the digital age.

“To be a human being is to have the almost unique opportunity of getting to know oneself and the world in which one lives. It is sure shortsighted to disregard this opportunity and confine oneself solely to the business of living.”

Intersticia Fellowship Retreat

Every three years we bring our Fellows together from wherever they are in the world to connect, learn and explore how they can collaborate and connect to enhance and expand the impact of their work.  In the interim we work with our Fellows individually to support them in their personal development.


Our first Leadership Retreat was held at Goodenough College, London from the 25th of June to the 1st of July, 2018.  Our next Leadership Retreat will be held in 2021.
