What We Do

Change Creation works with visionary organisations to create and embed transformational change. Now, more than ever, we are committed helping arts and cultural organisations and their leaders to change and shape their organisations in these unprecedented times, facing the COVID-19 crisis. It's a mammoth task, and we stand both shoulder to shoulder and in humble service to you all. We are creating tools, resources and working with industry and sector experts to help think with you about we can re-model our organisations, communicate effectively, safeguard futures and continue to work with and for the communities we feel so passionately about. As an essential element of health and wellbeing, self expression and our human community, we know you want to find ways to continue offering opportunities for creativity, art, innovation and connection. We’re committed to helping you and your organisations navigate these changes, and we want all cultural organisations to access the best support at this time. We’re focussing our current efforts on the immediate changes and responses you might need to take to help your organisation react, plan and safeguard your futures. We want to share free resources, offer insights and support that you might find useful, and help in any way that occurs to you.

We are refining our change creation programmes to fit with current demands, and we will be building and growing new networks of peer support for cultural leaders across the UK. Talk to us to access our free support or to explore ways that our team of colleagues could complement your existing team to help you navigate changes in your organisation, community and nation. Drop us an email here and we’ll connect with you today to see how we can support you in your unprecedented journey.    

Change Creation is designed and delivered by people make it work, one of the UK’s most experienced organisational development agencies working in the Cultural sector. 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.

What’s being said about Change Creation

I can't tell you how much I’m drawing on the learning from Change Creation as we navigate the current craziness and ghastliness. It’s like that whole programme was a preparation for the ultimate change we were all going to have to face... without even realising it. It’s never been more important to draw on every bit of the resilience, strength in leadership, generosity and collaborative practice, that you helped shape in spades for us all. A big thanks from me.

I feel incredibly lucky that we are taking part in the Change Creation programme at the moment. What has it taught or given me? An incredible cohort of colleagues to share and occasionally vent with; a space to reflect rather than just react; as well as practical tools to apply to complex problems. And what are our principles that we can apply to professional and personal life right now? Openness and clarity in communication to reassure, and active listening and space to give people agency so that they can feel in control of the changes that they need to make. In a time of crisis don't lose sight of your principles, deal with the most pressing issues that affect your organisation first, self-care and care for others, and most importantly, remember that you are not alone.
