Company of Others are delighted to be recipients of Arts Council England’s Elevate Fund.
‘The Elevate Fund was created in order to strengthen the resilience of arts organisations which are not in receipt of National Portfolio funding in the period 2015-18, but which demonstrate that they make a significant contribution to the Creative Case for Diversity’ Arts Council England, Website, 2016.
Our Elevate project will develop and strengthen the infrastructure and resilience strategies of Company of Others in order to support our delivery of the Creative Case for Diversity and Equality.
We will double our capacity, enabling us to work in a more efficient and impactful way.
We will address our governance, policies and business plan ensuring the Creative Case is woven throughout our organisation.
We will explore and develop new ways of earning and attracting income to support us in being adaptable to the changing financial landscape by raising our profile and developing new relationships.
We will create a consortium of organisations operating at a similar level to us, through which we will share learning and data as well as support each other’s developmental journey.
If you would like to talk to us about our Elevate project then please do get in touch by phone, email or catch us the next time you see us in person.
Thank you to balletLorent, GemArts, Nazli Tabatabai-Khatambakhsh and Dance City who have given invaluable support to this project.
