Ideas and creativity are the lifeblood of arts, culture and heritage organisations. But so too are many other aspects of human knowledge, information and data.

We help you turn them from what can often be a headache into a strategic asset – delivering cultural, social and economic benefits as well as enhancing your overall resilience.

We can help you to:

  • Identify your assets: Work out who holds what data, information and knowledge, where it is and which of it is most valuable.

  • Communicate value: Create a common language and format for all the information and data that you hold, so that it’s meaningful to everyone.

  • Integrate your information: Join up the systems that hold your all-important information and data, so you get a holistic view and new insights.

  • Data-charge your strategy: So you and your stakeholders get the most value from it, whilst sticking to your values and ethics.

  • Become data capable: Build on these skills to develop data confidence in the future.
