No. 7 – 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.

7. Supporting the Creation of the London Ticket Bank

As part of our tenth anniversary celebrations, in 2023 Achates donated an exceptional sum to the Cultural Philanthropy Foundation to enable the Foundation to create the London Ticket Bank, a one-year initiative in partnership with Carboard Citizens to ensure everyone in London had access to culture during the cost-of-living crisis. Partners ranged from the National Theatre and National Gallery to the Southbank Centre and Barbican and thousands of tickets were taken up over the year.

Look out for our 8th offering next week as we continue to celebrate ten years of Achates!
