“Embedding transformative change with energy, collective wisdom, ideas and commitment.”

Creating Transformation is a NEW programme co-designed and co-created with the sector. Starting in Autumn 2022 Creating Transformation provides sustained and immersive support for all arts and cultural organisations across the UK. With 18 months of intensive learning, workshops, mentoring, action learning, tools, resources and personal development Creating Transformation enables organisations to re-model, re-shape, realign, refocus and reimagine their futures. This programme is for organisations who are hungry to lead the sector to become more relevant, equitable, sustainable, resilient, dynamic, ambitious, creative and socially just.

“Creating urgency to break through slow, incremental institutional rhythms,

to generate a shared momentum that means everyone is in action.”

About the programme

01

Problem

Our time, our assets and people are all challenged as we continue navigating change and uncertainty. Concurrently we are in pursuit of a transformative and equitable sector, seeking to make a lasting impact on the people we work with and for.

As a result our wellbeing, leadership, resilience and energy is tested and stretched. Business models and income generation need to iterate and adapt to changing circumstances, audience habits and preferences. We must demonstrate an unstoppable commitment to the climate crisis, to equity, social justice and quality. We have to invest in our sector’s future through empowerment and talent development, partnerships and collaboration, communities and innovation.

Proposition

A multi-faceted, co-created programme of intense and sustained support (18 months) for leaders and their organisations to create transformational change in this moment, to re-shape, re-focus and re-align. 

The programme is live and action-focussed. All organisations will be working on their transformational change during the lifetime of the programme with workshops for teams, individuals and whole organisations, supported by toolkits, change management expertise, organisational development, mentoring, action learning, curated resources, dynamic interventions, blogs, case studies, research and co-coaching.  All organisations will share knowledge insights collectively, and be part of a facilitated sub-cohort, working with organisations with similar challenges and ambitions (climate justice, equity, relevance, culture, place, impact etc).
