The Cultural Commerce Consultant


The commercial aspect of cultural organisations is increasingly important to their ongoing sustainability. Yet unlike purely commercial entities, cultural organisations need their commercial operations, especially retail and publishing, to provide cultural as well as commercial dividends. As the Cultural Commerce Consultant I understand how to run commercial activities so that they are aligned to cultural outcomes and how to achieve this along sound, sustainable and profitable commercial lines.
