No. 4 – 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.


4. Offering Pro Bono Support and Advice

Over the years Achates has written and secured Arts Council England status for organisations ranging from Shubbak to Shakespeare North. What is less well known is the pro bono support Achates has given to level the playing field for cultural organisations across the UK; with free to access Achates Live! sessions focusing on both Arts Council England and Arts Council Wales applicant processes and more than 40 pro bono workshops delivered to applicant organisations in advance of the last ACE NPO round.

Look out for our 5th offering next week as we continue to celebrate ten years of Achates!
