We work with other organisations to help them to imagine new programmes, access funding, bring together partnerships, and commission artists. We can offer creative consultation, strategy, curatorial, fundraising and development support.
Our consultancy work is delivered as a social business, and seed funds new ideas, support artists and helps us to develop new work with communities.
People we’ve worked with include The Turnpike, Heart of Glass, Granby Workshop, Assemble, Tameside Council, Bluecoat, Helix Arts, City of York Council and MAKE Liverpool.
The Cap and Dove
We were invited to support GM Arts to develop an artistic programme as a legacy from 2019’s Peterloo bi-centenary. We worked with the 10 local authorities of Greater Manchester to develop a collective approach to commissioning that would enable ambition, engagement and artists’ development.

Through 2018 we worked with artists. communities, arts organisations and Wigan council develop a new cultural strategy for Wigan Borough. The strategy brought together the Borough’s incredible cultural offer under 5 key themes, to act as a framework for development of audiences, impact, arts practice and infrastructure.
