Objectives

Mission

To make this vision happen CG supports people and organisations in the cultural and creative industries in Gloucestershire and introduces new people to arts, culture and creativity.

Our aim is to:

  • Lead and support the highest professional and quality standards across our network
  • Attract, support and retain the best and most diverse talent
  • Provide access to education, knowledge and skills that help our network engage with the challenges and opportunities of a rapidly changing world
  • Build a body of knowledge and facilitate collaboration, research and innovation in practice

Activities

In practice what we do:

  • Organise events that bring our network together and build relationships.
  • Host high level conversations to affect policy by influencing relevant policy makers and funders.
  • Facilitate access to finance from traditional arts sources (e.g. Arts Council, arts trusts and foundations) as well as from less familiar areas including philanthropy and cultural commissioning.
  • “De-risk” innovation by securing funding to test new ideas making it more attractive to members, especially SMEs
  • Curate a series of micro ‘experiments’ that test and explore new ways of working using lean and agile thinking.
  • Design shared measurement processes and tools.
  • Distil key best practice insights and feedback
  • Distribute learning across our network both harvested from our experiments and from best practice nationally and internationally.
  • Support member to scale/replicate successful innovation and to discard ideas that have not worked.
