Lindsay Harrod, the Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy Fellow at the Arts Development Company, has written an article for Arts Professional called 'Going it Alone'. Dorset's local authority arts service has just made the complex transition to a public service mutual. In her article, Lindsay shares the issues they faced and the benefits they are now reaping.
"In July the Arts Development Company was born. It was the end of a long and complex process to ‘spin out’ of the local authority into an employee-owned community interest company. It is a new era in arts development provision for local arts organisations, artists and the community we serve in Dorset."
