We keep our clients and partners are up to date with the most pressing issues of the day. We conduct consultancy research, drawing on a large network of leading researchers covering a wide range of subjects pertinent to the creative and cultural sectors. We blend quantitative (the ‘numbers’) and qualitative (the ‘the stories’) primary and secondary research methods to investigate areas of interest.



We advise our clients and partners on policy, regulatory and political developments to help them design effective programmes, make sound investments and position their activities with decision makers for maximum impact. We specialise in co-designing policy that is evidence-informed, impactful and implementable by the decision makers in the driving seat.



We help our clients and partners get their work noticed. We map key influencers and convene the right people for moments of planned advocacy. We lead campaigns - from soft ‘closed-door’ to high profile narrative changing work. We increasingly collaborate with artists working across the creative and cultural sectors to communicate policy in new and innovative ways.
