Organisational Development Mentoring: Testing New Ways of Working

Our Organisational Development mentoring project has now finished. The successful applicants to receive mentoring were: 'In Our Element', the visual arts programme for the Cotswold Water Park Trust; 'Reveal' - a consortium of visual arts organisations in Somerset; and Porthmeor Studios in Cornwall.

Each organisation was given mentoring guidance by Ann Jones (Art Projects and Solutions) to help maintain and strengthen the level of quality in a difficult economic climate with the aims of:

  • Offer support to enable visual arts organisations to help themselves
  • Up-skill individuals from the sector to action change for resilience
  • To facilitate venues transition from existing to new business models
  • To pilot projects from which the other visual arts venues, regionally and nationally could learn
  • To maintain and support sustainable visual arts organisations in the region

Our blog on the project describes aspects of the process. See http://orgdevmentoring.blogspot.co.uk/

An evaluation report about the project is available to read here
