We are people make it work. We work as internal team members, within a professional community with a shared commitment to support the cultural sector to change, develop and transform. We all lead our respective areas of work, and are committed to supporting each other and our wider community of associate colleagues to thrive. We work to enable a fairer, more representative and more sustainable cultural sector.
