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.
WHAT ADAPT FOR ARTS CAN DO FOR YOU
You may be developing a new direction for your organisation, or taking on new projects and programmes that will fill or stretch your capacity, for example, a major capital campaign. We can provide long-term support via a bespoke project to develop a culture change, new way of working or a concentrated period of growth.
Intensive hands-on support
You are a Director or Manager and you would really benefit from advice and guidance that is only a phone call away. We can be on-hand to support your long-term, and day-to-day needs, whether it be strategy, reflection or delivery.
Fundraising strategy & action planning
You know you have to fundraise but you aren’t sure what is realistic and appropriate for your organisation. We can work with you to develop an actionable fundraising plan that takes into account your specific set of circumstances.
You don’t currently have the capacity to carry out your fundraising plans. We can help lighten the load, with a close eye on building capacity so to end the perpetual cycle of project funding.
You need to set your course for the next few years, and you want to find a way to do this that involves and engages your team. We can lead this process, from facilitated sessions, to ongoing support to develop this crucial document.
Training, consultation and/or advice
You want to know about something really specific like individual giving or strategic relationship building. We can deliver targeted sessions that are engaging, informative, inspirational, but also practical.
You need to bring people together to reach a specific aim. We can lead this in a way that empowers and engages people to reach consensus on an idea, or make some big decisions. We design processes carefully to make the most out of an opportunity where everyone is in the room.
