Accelerating Change – Learning and Exchange Event
Our Accelerator Programme works with two cohorts of up to ten organisations or consortia to advance their sustainable practice and share insights with their peers and the wider sector. The programme looks at everything from touring models and audience engagement to design and supply chains, income generation and governance.
We were delighted to host our national Accelerator event at the People’s History Museum in Manchester in September, where about 15 representatives from the first cohort shared their learning and progress with about over 60 others, mainly those applying to be part of the second cohort and Arts Council England representatives.
It was a packed afternoon of quick-fire presentations, mapping sessions and collaborative group work across a range of themes from sustainable touring and circular artistic practice to zero-carbon culture roadmaps and environmental commissioning. With warm thanks to all who came for for your enthusiasm and contributions.

Please note that applications for the Second Cohort of Accelerators closes on the 14th October! For any queries on this please email email@example.com
During the afternoon we did a mapping session looking at 4 key environmental priorities and how the arts and culture sector can contribute – on a practical level, a creative and programming level and a policy level.
Art Charter For Climate Action
