Resilience Programme - supporting change in the arts

In recent years the arts sector has faced a number of challenges, including reduced public sector funding. We’ve developed the Resilience Programme in partnership with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland to help up to 15 large-scale arts organisations in Belfast become more sustainable.  

About the programme

The programme will provide free, tailored, practical support outlined below.

  • An organisational diagnostic – an experienced mentor will review the organisation’s current operation, identifying key strengths and weaknesses.
  • Organisational plan – a bespoke change management or strategic development plan will be developed. 
  • Masterclasses – a series of masterclasses will be delivered, tailored to the needs and ambitions of the participating organisations. 
  • Implementation assistance – each organisation will be given tailored support to help them implement changes recommended.
