Hundreds of people and organisations make up Culture Collective – our richness is in our diversity. Here’s an introduction to some of the people behind the scenes:

The Programme Lead team

The Culture Collective Programme Lead team is coordinated by freelance practitioner Kathryn Welch. Communications and PR is led by Storytelling PR. Morvern Cunningham is our Creative Lead and François Matarasso is the programme’s Caretaker. Improbable host our semi-regular Open Space events. An evaluation of Culture Collective is led by Queen Margaret University – Rachel Blanche, Anthony Schrag, David Stevenson, Alice McGrath and Bryan Beattie.

To get in touch with the Programme Lead team, email Kathryn Welch, who can direct you from there.

The Programme Lead team work regularly with other freelancers who bring extra skill, knowledge and perspective to the team. In particular, we’re keen to recognise (and recommend!) some of our regular collaborators:

The Culture Collective projects

The Culture Collective network is made up of 26 individual projects. These are typically collaborative efforts, including multiple organisations, artists, groups and communities. You can find out more about – and get in touch with – individual Culture Collective projects via the links within the Projects section of the site. You should contact them directly to discuss job opportunities / commissions, or getting involved in your local project.
