Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy Commissioned to Lead a Branding Study for Charleston, East Sussex

We are delighted to have been commissioned to work with Charleston to explore how to develop and effectively position the organisations brand. Famously, Charleston was the home and country meeting place for the writers, painters and intellectuals known as the Bloomsbury Group.

Since 1981 Charleston has been owned and run by the Charleston Trust and today it remains a place of inspiration and creativity as a thriving independent house museum. Each year more than 35,000 people visit; almost 25,000 come to the house while a further 12,000 participate in the Trust's public programme, attending talks, lectures, creative workshops and literature festivals.

The challenge now is to build on the distinctive heritage of Charleston and develop a brand which mobilises new audiences, deepens relationships with existing audiences, and puts the overall organisation on a more innovative and sustainable footing.

The study, which we are developing in collaboration with place branding expert Juan Carlos Belloso, forms part of a wider programme of activities aimed to generate evidence and stimulate new thinking for East Sussex's Cultural Strategy.
