Who We Helped

If your organisation or individual practice is in the creative industries and is based in Scotland, then you can come to AmbITion Scotland for consultancy and financial support – we’re launching a scheme in April 2012 to match organisations together with Higher Education Institutions to undertake research, development and innovation work; and we launch our Make:IT:Happen Fund in July 2012. If you don’t need direct support, then make sure that you engage with the wider learning, resources and networking programme and opportunities!

AmbITion Scotland 2009-2011 worked directly with 55 arts and cultural organisations from across Scotland, assisting with consultancy and financial support. Many, many other cultural organisations benefitted from the wider learning, resources and networking programme.

From 2007-2009, AmbITion England worked with a number of arts organisations in the North West and East region. They covered all art forms, and varied greatly in size. All of these organisations benefitted from going through the AmbITion Approach methodology, and received consultancy, training and networking support. In addition, they participated in a number of academic evaluations – and provided case studies.
