Supporting Innovation and Shaping Policy

Sometimes a good idea needs to be shared so that other organisations and communities can feel the benefits too. DHA have worked with Liverpool Arts Regeneration Consortium since it was first created following the 2008 European City of Culture.

The consortium, which was backed by some of the biggest regional names in arts and culture, including the Tate, the Bluecoat and the Liverpool Philharmonic, has pioneered a partnership approach to arts-led regeneration.

In June 2011, DHA helped the Consortium share its learning and experience across and beyond the arts sector,      by helping LARC develop and host a national conference of leading arts sector figures interested in realising     future opportunities for collaboration, both within and beyond the sector.

At the conference members of LARC were able to pass on their learning and experience from the LARC model of collaboration,  alongside speakers such as Clore Leadership programme director Sue Hoyle, Director General   of the English-Speaking Union Michael Lake,  Chief Executive of &Co Alison Edbury, Piali Ray the Director of sampad South Asian Arts, DCMS Head of Research Dr Adam Cooper,  Dave Moutrey, Director and Chief Executive of Cornerhouse. Speaker Biographies are available to view online.
