What We Do

Change Creation works with visionary organisations to create and embed transformational change. Designed and delivered by people make it work, one of the UK’s most experienced organisational development agencies working in the Cultural sector, Change Creation involves and engages organisations to shape, test, challenge and realise lasting change through networks, peer learning, research, tools, resources, a hot-house of support, industry experts, workshops, learning events… and much more! By working and learning together and creating a vibrant community of leaders, organisations are supported to realise and share real change that benefits their people, audiences, participants and the wider cultural sector.

At the heart of Change Creation is a cohort of 28 visionary organisations - a diverse range of organisations including established National Portfolio Organisations and grass roots organisations from the worlds of dance, theatre, music, libraries, heritage, literature, festivals and the visual arts… they’re an incredible bunch.



We’d love to hear about you, your organisation and your change plans. We’ve got and we’re growing, a community of incredible leaders from across the cultural sector. We’ll connect you with organisations that have tested, tackled and delivered change plans similar to yours. We’ll send you resources, tools, videos and our latest insights and learning.
Shifting organisational culture? Re-imagining your organisation vision? Developing strategy? Understanding the needs of your stakeholders? We’ll invite you to events so that you can build your network, share insights, learn from others and become part of an incredible community of leaders.

What’s being said about Change Creation

Bristol is a city which is beginning to see a new wave of cultural leaders who are attempting to do things differently. Arnolfini is at the heart of that sea change within the city - an organisation on the brink of profound transformation. To have the opportunity to take those steps with fellow travellers in large and small organisations across the UK is significant.  A peer-to-peer network over two years that is focused on action not just thinking will be hugely beneficial to the arts sector as a whole.

Claire Doherty, Arnolfini

Last year we announced ambitious plans to develop a Free School and expand our cinema operations. To deliver both of these projects we will need to radically reshape our business model. The Change Creation programme will provide structure to our planning, with expert guidance on hand to ensure that our expansion is a success, providing long term sustainability for Royal & Derngate and increasing our impact and relevance locally

As you will have noticed, this website is dedicated to an Arts Council England funded two year project called ‘Change Creation’ for arts and cultural organisations, and delivered by people make it work.

We get the impression that Trevor and Shaun are nice fellas and have a good team around them, but this link shouldn’t be considered a recommendation, referral or promotion of their company, we’re just being good neighbours and helping you find who you are looking for.
