Exploring the feasibility of collaborative Cultural & Creative EU SIF projects

A review of opportunities for collaborative bidding to the EU SIF programme by the cultural and creative sector in the North East LEP area.

diagram 1On behalf of Culture North East, I investigated the feasibility of collaborative projects that would bring together cultural and creative organisations to deliver cultural business support and provide routes to employment for disadvantaged people, using ESF and/or ERDF funding.  To inform this, my team and I consulted a wide range of cultural and creative organisations, from small niche organisations such as Headway Arts and Helix Arts, through great medium sized venues such as the Customs House, Tyneside Cinema and Live Theatre, to flagship cultural organisations such as Sage Gateshead and Beamish Museum.

The slides from one of the workshops are included below.
