6 Dec 2019

Group of people sat down at tables with pens paper and cups of tea, during one of our programme learning blocks.

In October 2017, leaders of 24 cultural sector organisations across England came together for our Building Resilience Programme, funded by Arts Council England. The 18-month programme – which finished this year – supported them to build organisational resilience through diversity and entrepreneurship.

Each participant received:

  • Learning sessions which covered topics including personal resilience, creativity, social impact
  • One-to-one consultancy support
  • £5,000 grant

90% of students said that the programme made them feel more confident in developing and launching new products and services. All of the participants said that the programme has helped them to widen and strengthen their peer support network.
