The arts are capable of unlocking the potential of so-called marginalized young people who, for various reasons, have lost out, cultural solutions uk enabled this to happen!

We'll wait before we go travelling until Darren finishes the learning in June. He'd never had done any of this without you.

A company full of energy, knowledge, commitment and vision. They have a unique overview of the cultural landscape in Lincolnshire and a fantastic capacity for strategic thinking and dynamic delivery.
—Simon Hollingworth, Director, Lincoln Drill Hall
The team are a highly professional and enthusiastic team to work with. Feedback from cultural groups who they worked with on the Coastal Cultural Strategy, was that cultural solutions uk were approachable, professional and connected with what was "needed" for culture to develop and be sustainable on the coast.
—Nicola Radford, Principal Development Officer, Economy and Culture, Lincolnshire County Council, (Coastal Communities Alliance)
We have been working with cultural solutions uk since 2008 when we retained them as our cultural advisers. Since then they have successfully secured funding for the past three annual beam! festivals before going on to devise and deliver the festivals. They also researched and implemented a sustainable annual Artists Market programme, now in its fifth year.
What we like about them is they understand the needs of our 800 members' and how the arts can assist in realising their predominately economic aspirations.
—Michael Armstrong, Events and Promotions Manager Lincoln Business Improvement Group
On a personal note - My 5 year old son attended one of the "Wolds Words" events delivered by cultural solutions uk (the Gruffallo) and thought it was "brilliant". It was well organised and professional with interaction at the right level for children (not patronising!) he thoroughly enjoyed the event and would attend future activities organised by cultural solutions uk.

We have enjoyed working with cultural solutions uk and think they make a real difference to the community. They make things happen by giving young individuals a chance to achieve new skills, qualifications and an enjoyable experience.
—Adele Dewell, Director, Streetz Ahead Theatre Arts Lincoln
We have taken part in the East Lindsey Wolds Words Festival for many years. Last year, cultural solutions uk took over the organisation, marketing and promotion of the festival, and immediately raised the bar, with, for instance, a programme which had the look and feel of a trendy, happening event. In short, they brought a touch of va-va-voom to the festival.
