Create sustainable relationships and communicate well

Building relationships might mean deciding on the right marketing channels or the right messages. Or it could be setting up member schemes or community advisory boards with young people or families.


Here are a few examples of how we've helped organisations communicate - but get in touch to talk through your own unique ambition.


We wanted to get to know our local potential partners better and Audiences London worked with us in planning the event. It was a great success and much more fun than any of us had imagined.

The London Borough of Sutton was seeking an independent intermediary to make contact with the many voluntary sector organisations within its area, to discover their perceptions of and aspirations for the arts and culture within the Borough and how they might get involved to help the arts thrive. We organised and carried out interviews with the sector 'gatekeepers'; then presented our findings to the Council staff and voluntary group representatives.

Festival organisation LIFT wanted to develop a model for building sustainable community engagement in areas needing economic, infrastructure and society regeneration. We partnered with LIFT to host a CLP Peach Placement to specialise in this investigation ? the findings from which will be available through Audiences London presentations. 

Theatre 503 wanted to grow their audience and reach in a way they could maintain over time. We talked through their plans with them, and concluded that a dedicated intern placement could offer a solution that would work better than more traditional, resource-heavy direct marketing routes. We helped them develop and advertise the brief; and recruit and mentor the successful candidate. Our mentoring included prioritising contacts, developing messages about Theatre 503?s offer, and refining tone/style/approach. A number of of key relationships and partnerships have resulted.
