  • Strengthening the sector

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

    There are two programmes:

    • Resilience programme
    • Creating Futures

    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.

    Programme toolkits

    We have various programme-related toolkits available. For more information or to ask for a toolkit email culture@belfastcity.gov.uk or call us on 028 9027 0227.
