No. 3 – Celebrating Ten Years of Achates with Ten of Our Greatest Achievements

Cultural sector consultancy, #Achates, was founded in April 2014 with the aim of making high quality consultancy available to all. Every day we recruit cultural sector workers, fundraise and support commercial income generation, develop organisational and regional strategies, and support organisational change, but our purpose has always been to go beyond our paid work and to give back to our sector. And as we reach the end of our 10th anniversary year, we are celebrating ten of our key achievements and social value created.


3. Creating Achates Live! and Achates Inspires

In 2018, Achates launched Achates Live! as a free workshop for culture sector fundraisers. The monthly event originally took place in-person at The Old Vic Theatre, but when the pandemic hit, the events quickly moved online. For the following year, Achates Live! took place fortnightly, before reverting to the original monthly format. In 2022, Achates launched Achates Inspires as a monthly forum for cultural sector leaders. There is now an extensive archive of both Achates Live! and Achates Inspires events available on our YouTube Channel.

Look out for our 4th offering next week as we continue to celebrate ten years of Achates!
