Creative United’s Prosper has delivered business support for arts and cultural organisations across England. Tyler Magas asks three organisations what changes they have made and what advice they would give others seeking business support.
Librarians in a London Borough have developed a more commercial mindset and the CEO of a crafts gallery is more confident to approach prospective funders, both as a result of the Prosper business support programme. Bethan Hall Williams explains.
Arts organisations are increasingly diversifying their sources of income and for some that may require social investment to get an enterprise up and started. Ed Anderton explains the support Access offers.
The growth of the cultural and creative industries may be strong, but there are still questions regarding productivity and performance among smaller organisations. Nick Henry is optimistic that things will soon change.
