Arts & Heritage. People & Places. Stories & Spaces.

Bright Culture is a partnership of experienced, imaginative and resourceful professionals, working across England.

We use our creativity and expertise to champion curiosity and exploration of stories, connecting spaces, places and people to enrich lives and inspire change.

Our expertise


We have found Bright Culture to be a passionate collective of informed individuals who rose to the challenge of working with six of our members on bespoke audience development requirements over a very short period of time. All project partners report that they have learnt a great deal from the experience, and that Bright Culture were responsive and understanding, and they now have better idea of what their organisations need to do to develop and maintain their audiences.

An Action Learning Convert

When people are genuinely energised by and interested in change, development and growth; and are willing to be open to challenge and actively listen to others, then amazing things really can and do happen. Action learning is successful approach that can support this happening.

The Generator Consultation

The Generator Loughborough is an exciting project to restore and reuse the town’s old College of Art and Design. Bright Culture is undertaking consultation to find out how the local community would like to engage with the space in the future.

Buildings Vs Landscapes

One of the reasons I got into heritage is because I really love old buildings, everything from grand stately homes to castle ruins to terraced houses. I like features - pillars and porticos, chimneys and bricks, door bells and boot scrapers, the extravagant and lavish to the practical and functional. So when I first started working on projects at Cannock Chase AONB in Staffordshire, I wasn’t sure how I would respond to a landscape rather than a building.
