Julie’s Bicycle is looking for two cohorts of ten organisations wishing to advance their sustainable practice to take part in its Accelerator Programme.
Since 2012, Arts Council England has partnered with Julie’s Bicycle to deliver a flagship Environmental Programme, inspiring new ideas and sustainable practice across the country. Collectively, National Portfolio Organisations have reduced energy consumption by 22% and made savings of £11 million.
The Accelerator Programme is a new strand of this work, recruiting two cohorts of up to ten organisations or consortia to work with Julie’s Bicycle to advance their sustainable practice and share insights with their peers and the wider sector. The programme will be looking at everything from touring models and audience engagement to design and supply chains to income generation and governance
Julie’s Bicycle want to build a diverse, balanced and representative Cohort and are eager to hear from a wide range of organisations. Organisations do not need to be in receipt of Arts Council England funding but they must be based in England. The programme is open to organisations of any scale working across the artforms supported by the Arts Council.
Please find details about the Accelerator Programme here.
Initial Expression of Interest to be submitted by 8 June.
