Strengthening the cultural sector

Strengthening the Sector is a pilot programme designed to help Belfast’s cultural organisations enhance their business performance and boost their income.

Delivered in partnership with Arts & Business Northern Ireland, it provides practical business development through:

  • workshops
  • toolkits
  • mentoring support for individuals
  • networking events.
So far over 100 cultural organisations have participated and 30 individuals have benefited from mentoring.


The useful toolkits that were developed for the programme are free for anyone to download and use.
