Tom Fleming commissioned with Catherine Bunting to undertake a review of Creative People and Places Governance and Consortia Working.

Tom Fleming will team up with arts and cultural research expert Catherine Bunting to explore the ways different Creative People and Places (CPP) projects across England are establishing consortia to drive their activities. CPP is a GBP37m programme led by Arts Council England for parts of the country with lower levels of involvement and engagement in the arts. 21 CPP projects have been selected over three rounds of investment. Each CPP project is required to set up a new consortium inclusive of arts organisations, businesses and a range of public sector and community interests. Our role will be to explore the different models of consortia working to identify best and next practice for cross-sector partnership in the arts. Our client for this is the leading creative education organisation, A New Direction.
