Connect Through Culture and Bridging the Gap Museums programme
TFCC was commissioned to undertake two related pieces of research which will inform approaches to sector development in this challenging post-Brexit reality. The programme included research and engagement in countries as diverse as Greece, Romania, Norway, Ireland, Portugal, Poland and The Netherlands. - The first - Connect Through Culture - involved engagement with artists and intermediary organisations across Europe to explore the types of support needed for impactful artist mobility. This is in the context of the end to freedom of movement for UK artists and thus a set of new challenges to establish collaborative artistic practice between the UK and other European countries. - The second - Bridging the Gap - involved engagement with museums and cultural institutes to identify skills and capacity gaps which require strategic attention. This includes skills to develop a sustainable and inclusive museums sector.
