Arts Business Models Project

It was very exciting to see that the Expressions of Interest for the Arts Business Models peer learning partnerships are now open. The project has been set up as part of a wider programme that is supporting Museums in the South East with reviewing and adapting their business models. This has been driven by the need to adapt to the changes in the external operating environment that have been impacting many arts and cultural organisations.

Susan Royce and I were commissioned to do a review of successful arts business models in the South East and prepare a report and six mini case studies. The case study organisations have agreed to join the project to share their experiences and learning around developing and implementing new business models. Museums in the South East are now being invited to apply to partner with one of the case study organisations to share insights and learning.

I’ll post more about our process and findings but if you are interested in finding out more about the project please go to:

I would like to personally thank the six case study organisations that so willingly shared their stories with us; it was inspiring and heartening to hear about the work they have been doing.
