About Creative Lenses

Creative Lenses is a four-year project (2015-2019) that seeks to make arts and cultural organisations more resilient and sustainable by improving their business models and developing their long-term strategic and innovation capacities.

The key question Creative Lenses seeks to answer is, what are the most viable and suitable business models for non-profit arts and cultural organisations to be more resilient and financially sustainable without compromising their artistic integrity, mission and values?

The legacy of the project will be the know-how, tools and support mechanisms required for European arts and cultural organisations to strengthen their financial sustainability, so that they are more able to successfully deliver their missions.
