No. 6 – 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.

6. Sponsoring Cultural Events

Achates has over its ten-year history also sponsored a vast range of events and activities –  from the Achates Philanthropy Prize to The King’s Head Theatre’s Drag Queen Gala, Lancaster Litfest’s International Women’s Day Lecture which this year will be given by Anna Beer, through to the inaugural Cultural Philanthropy Foundation Thought Leadership Lecture, given by President of the Ford Foundation, Darren Walker OBE and which can be watched on YouTube.

Look out for our 7th offering next week as we continue to celebrate ten years of Achates!
