You’re doing great things.

You’re changing the world for the better, one project at a time.
You want to grow your capacity, build your financial resilience or get a new project off the ground…but where do you start?

That’s where we come in.

Adapt for Arts exists to help you become more sustainable. We do this through organisational development, fundraising consultancy, research, and training. We also take learning from our work across the UK, combine this with research and practice from other industries, and create innovations to solve challenges affecting the arts and cultural sector.

Since 2016 we’ve strengthened the sustainability of 25+ arts organisations across the UK including TIN Arts, The Old Courts, Edinburgh Printmakers and The Art House, Wakefield.

There’s nobody else who works like Adapt for Arts. They totally immerse themselves with you, supporting you every step of the way from the project thinking, through strategy, to approaching funders.
