What is Culture+?
Culture+ was a free programme of activities that supported artists, creatives, arts and cultural organisations to thrive in Dorset, Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. From March 2017 to October 2019. Funded by the Arts Council England (ACE) and European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
What did it achieve?
We supported more than 450 artists and arts organisations from across the region to develop. From our support some became a business, some were able to gain further funding, and others developed new products to offer to their customer.
70% of the creatives who attended our workshops felt that they have considerably increased their knowledge.
60 % of the creatives said that they are more confident because our workshops.
These reports were written in December 2019 and may be updated early 2020 when we received data from the final evaluation of the programme from our Dorset Growth Hub lead partner- WSX enterprise.
