sam-culture specialises in working with organisations to help them understand the difference that they make in culture, communities, place-making and the creative economy.

Our aim is to build business for culture and heritage by enabling organisations to prove the value and impact of their activities, socially, economically and culturally. We work with cultural businesses to provide a wide range of cost effective services, including:

  • Audience research and development planning
  • Cultural market assessment, supported by qualitative and quantitative research
  • Marketing and communication strategy
  • Socio-economic impact studies
  • Policy analysis to inform advocacy

Beyond Rhetoric: The Politics of Participation in Museums

Beyond Rhetoric: The Politics of Participation in Museums

National Conference Wednesday 12 November 2014 in Brighton

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and sam-culture are hosting a one-day conference – Beyond Rhetoric: The Politics of Participation in Museums.

As museums and museum funders develop participatory practice, ‘co-production’, ‘co-curation’, this conference will critically interrogate the challenges of this way of working and question its viability in the context of ever-shrinking funding for cultural institutions.  Join  Piotr Bienkowski, Helen Graham and Bernadette Lynch for lively discussions and debate.

Booking information and further details soon.

The Arts Marketing Association created culturehive as a new resource to share and shape best practice in cultural marketing.  Pam Jarvis (sam-culture) and Catherine Bunting have been appointed to evaluate culturehive to ensure it is meeting the aims of making best use of collective intelligence and as a mechanism to drive change and stimulate new ideas and techniques.
