PROUD TO HAVE WORKED WITH
From composing business plans and coordinating research, to forming partnerships, delivering place-making programmes, or designing innovative new ways of working, everything we do is inspired by a love of the arts, a knowledge of business, and a belief that culture and commerce have a lot to offer one another. Our clients are from across the creative industries including heritage institutions, cultural and performing arts establishments and city councils.
Here are a selection of case studies from our recent clients:
