Getting to grips with governance

Tuesday 3 November 2020, 1pm-3pm
Via Zoom


  • Are you a creative or group of creatives thinking of setting up your own organisation, and looking for the best model to fulfil your aims and objectives?
  • Or perhaps you’re an organisation considering changing governance models, or who want to make their current model work better?

Sunderland Culture are offering sessions with consultant and governance expert, David Beuzeval, to look at all aspects of governance and support you to make changes.

In an introductory session, we will open the conversation and look at your organisation’s aims and objectives, how they align with different governance models, and any governance challenges your organisation may be facing. In advance of the first session, participants will be asked to complete some simple questions which will help us to frame the discussion in the first session and make it as relevant as possible to the individuals or organisations signed up.

Following the session, there will be further group sessions or 1-2-1s with David, depending on the needs of the group.

To register
To express interest in taking part, please email [email protected]. This session has very limited numbers which will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Please note: due to our funding conditions, these 1-2-1s are only available to individual creative practitioners who live work or study in Sunderland or creative/ heritage organisations and creative businesses who are based in Sunderland.

These sessions are offered as part of the Unlock the City programme which supports the development of artists and creative businesses in Sunderland. Unlock the City is delivered in partnership by Sunderland Culture, Sunderland City Council, Digital Catapult, North East BIC and Sunderland BME Network, with funding from Arts Council England, National Lottery Heritage Fund and Coastal Communities Fund.
