Culture Chain Consultancy Brief

Festival Bridge is seeking the service of a consultant who can help us to develop a programme that increases the skills and confidence of those working in the cultural sector to diversify their organisations’ investment.

An important element of our mission is to provide support for professionals working in the cultural sector who have a particular focus on children, young people and learning.  Through our work we have identified that professionals in learning positions and those leading cultural education focussed organisations have a range of knowledge, skills and understanding of business practices that can enable growth. However, delivery is heavily dependent on securing subsidy, leaving little capacity to research markets and enter product development and/or innovation. We believe this puts them at significant risk as the funding landscape continues to contract. We therefore want to devise  a 3-year programme that focuses  on innovation and entrepreneurship to support middle managers to develop business skills, and upskill micro-businesses to develop their business model.

Closing date for applications is 28th February 2019.
