Unhurried is an approach to life and work that aims to realise our human capacity for learning and growth. Unhurried is about allowing people to be more in tune with each other and what they're doing. It sets a pace that makes it easiest to create connection. It’s not fast, it’s not slow… it’s flowing and it feels right. It's about letting people use human intelligence in a way that machines can't.

Unhurried artists, inventors, performers and crafters are more able to control their focus. They stay open to new ideas and yet pay attention to detail. Unhurried people and organisations work more creatively and with greater satisfaction. They work towards sustainable products and services with greater care and less waste.

About us

Unhurried was started by Johnnie Moore and Antony Quinn, in Cambridge, joined by Viv McWaters in Melbourne. We met through a shared interest in improvised theatre. We noticed that when improv becomes manic, or when it stalls, it stops being satisfying to both performers and audience. But when the pace is right, things connect and wonderful things emerge, apparently spontaneously. We think the same thing applies to any process that requires the participation of human beings. We use Unhurried as a guiding principle in our work with people.

When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality. This is always exhilarating and sublime.
— Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
