“This research project needed a dynamic partnership between consultants with a range of expertise: from arts and heritage, qualitative field research, and diversity and inclusion. So as a team we put our heads together and pooled our resources and respective strengths. Our blended approach enabled us to get sight of the most relevant information, and to develop a highly practical tool for ACE. It also allowed us to speak to a wide range of smaller and larger arts-based businesses across the cultural sector. From the outset ACE were clear about how they wanted the tools to look, and we carried their brief right through to the layout and interactive nature of the final guides.”
