Achates Supports

Achates Live!

Achates Live! is our free monthly webinar providing support and insight for our fundraising community.

Launched as a free monthly in person event at The Old Vic Theatre in 2019 as part of support programme for cultural organisations, we moved online as a result of the pandemic and have continued our virtual offer ever since. All of the sessions, which include a diverse range of cultural sector experts, are available on our dedicated Achates Live! Online page and on our YouTube channel


Achates Inspires

Achates Inspires is a new lunchtime cross-arts forum for cultural sector leaders to come together, share experiences and ideas, and to explore new approaches to common problems.

A new programme to support Executive Directors/Chief Executives and Artistic Directors. With a focus on leaders from across the sector, but in particular, from small and medium sized cultural organisations, Achates Inspires will bring people together in an unprecedented forum for sector development.

Achates Roadshows

Achates Roadshows are an exceptional programme of support for cultural sector colleagues where we offer pro bono 45-minute one-to-one sessions in different areas of England. In 2023 we visited Leeds and Bristol. In early 2024 we will be coming to Birmingham. More information on this will be available in the New Year.
