Strengthening the cultural sector

Strengthening the Sector programmes aim to help Belfast’s cultural organisations enhance their business performance and boost their income. 

There are two current programmes:

Resilience Programme

Created by Arts Council NI and supported by us, this is a mentor-led programme which offers bespoke and tailored guidance to senior staff of Belfast’s large cultural organisations. 

There are currently 14 organisations taking part in this programme.

Creating Futures

This is an accredited bespoke leadership programme for small to medium sized arts organisations in Belfast focusing on change management, innovation, sustainability, and rethinking business strategy. 

We created this programme with Arts & Business NI, and it is delivered by Ulster University Business School. 

There are 10 organisations taking part in 2019. 


These useful toolkits that were developed for a previous programme are free for anyone to download and use:
