Our structure

The specific nature of our work and what we do determines our structure as we promote human creativity and individuality and have developed an inclusive structure. This is based on a core, Qultura Core, two systems, Qultura and Qultura Connect, and various projects realized through Reconnection. We have found this is the only way to effectively achieve our mission and objectives.

About this website

Social exclusion is a vast subject area which is a feature of cultural decline and social fragmentation and we support people who have many different life circumstances and situations. The content of this website is the result of more than 20 years of research and development by Stella Baker, the founder of Qultura who set up Qultura in 2009 as a vehicle for her Theory of Creativity and who works unpaid as the Primary Administrator of Qultura.

Welcome to Qultura

Change is always possible.

Qultura is a charitable organization working to support people affected by social exclusion and social stigma. We've rejected the typical business model for a charity or non-profit organization, we don't rent offices, nobody gets paid, we work according to a number of theories and common universal principles and achieve our mission through the development of local community culture because it brings people together and creates opportunities.

What is social exclusion?

Remember being singled out for additional chores or punishment? Ever experienced people important to you forgetting your birthday or an important anniversary? Or not being invited to a party or event to which everyone else you know has been invited? These are mild examples of social exclusion.

Social exclusion is a complex social issue involving many aspects of other issues such as poverty, inequality, joblessness, and so on. This subject area has yielded numerous academic studies and lots of research, making it a subject area which is heavily politicized by both the left and right. This is not our focus, and we disregard research and studies for a reason.

This reason is because on an individual level social exclusion comes down to a perceived experience which is stressful, often distressing, and is a social process which has various effects on someone's life experience, many of which can be quite profound and devastating. Our focus is on supporting individual people to the point where they feel once again included, independent and valued for who they are as individual human beings.

Our general strategy for supporting people.

Our global strategy for supporting people affected by social exclusion and social stigma is based on accessibility, empowerment and inclusion. Respect for the individual affected and their life experience is of paramount importance as is the delivery of support through primary social interaction, which needs to be positive, pleasant and reaffirming in nature.

However rather than focus on the issues which only compounds the stigma we prefer to promote cultural development and community support in local communities and support the development of individual, participant-centred projects which provide sustainable opportunities for those affected to resolve their own feelings and perception of exclusion in their own way.

Theory

Qultura's work is based on Stella Baker's Theory of Creativity, Energy Spectrum, both developed in 2009 and the common principles of universal law, which governs how energy functions in the universe. Everything in existence is subject to universal law.

Social theory

Development of the above theories and discovery of the principles of universal law led to finding the answer to what motivates social progress and human evolution, which is cultural development from individual human creativity. This yielded a social theory.

About social exclusion

Social exclusion (and social stigma) is an effect of social fragmentation and cultural decline. This is a social process which has many different harmful effects on people and complicates their lives in many different ways and we have created an entire section on social exclusion to promote awareness of the many issues involved.
