Project Development

ArtProjects and Solutions can help you develop and deliver ambitious projects, from cultural programmes for new museums, towns or cities to international contemporary art prizes for major arts institutions or brand agencies. We work across the breadth of visual arts practice, craft and design.

Between 2014-2017 we developed and delivered a cultural programme for Lincoln Cultural and Arts Partnership (a consortium bring Local Government, heritage, business and education sectors together and led by the University of Lincoln) to mark the City’s ownership of Magna Carta and The Charter of the Forest. Our work included securing over £1m in funding from business, Trusts and Foundations and public funding that included an Arts Council England Exceptional Award. The programme saw 12 new artists commissions and projects, 4 artist residencies, an extensive youth engagement programme and dynamic digital platform http://1215today.com/. We are currently working with Taunton Deane Borough Council in developing cultural projects that will support their Garden Town development and regeneration initiatives.

Since 2007 we have been working with Art Jameel and the Victoria and Albert Museum most significantly in the ongoing development of the prestigious Jameel Prize. For nine years we worked with Bacardi Global Brands on the development of art and design projects aligned with premium brands including the Bombay Sapphire Prize, a £25k annual award for artists, designers and makers working with glass and biennial sculpture commission for French emerging artists. We are able to support artists to achieve their very best whilst keeping to brief and delivering the client’s agenda.

We have developed and delivered numerous strategic programmes that include international artist residencies and arts managers training programmes for clients such as Arts Council England, British Council and Qatar Museums Authority. We have undertaken consultation, research and needs analysis contracts and delivered evaluation studies for national funders, membership organisations and consortia groups.

Whatever the project we will bring you all our knowledge, energy and skills, always keep your agenda foremost and never steal the limelight.

“Ann and Camilla’s skills and knowledge complemented those available at the Victoria and Albert Museum and we have worked together very harmoniously to develop the Prize which is a remarkably successful enterprise” V&A

‘ArtProjects & Solutions provided an excellent, tailor made service underpinned by extensive, first hand knowledge of national and international arts networks and key cultural contacts. Options were fully researched enabling judgements to be made about their relative merits, and the comprehensive organisation of the project was undertaken with enthusiasm and concern to achieve the best possible result within the budget available. The outcome of this project has been very positive and has laid firm foundations for longer term development and exchanges.’  Arts Council England
