BECCA Europe’s goal is to get European cultural and creative projects financed and realised. We are experts in European funding and policy issues, as well as public and private fundraising at other levels. In our Creative Europe fundraising, we have a success rate of over 90%. We work across the cultural and creative sectors—film, performing arts, music, visual arts, heritage as well as new and emerging technologies—in both the private and public sectors. Recent clients include ESNS, Royal Libraries, PRS Foundation, OUTtv, Wintertuin, VR Days Europe and Ticketing Group. Many other organisations have benefited from our research, consultancy activities and trainings. We work closely with a broad network of partners to provide a complete solution for getting European creative projects up and running.
The Revels office
The Revels Office is a management consultancy for the arts specialising in commercial and audience development, offering an end-to-end solution from strategy to delivery.
Working at the intersection between culture and commerce, we advise arts organisations on how to make the best return from existing and new activities in order to reach audiences, unlock revenue and celebrate the value of the arts.
We specialise in match-making cultural and commercial organisations to take world-class live and digital cultural content out to new markets, coordinating integration of these initiatives across teams and strategies for effective collaboration, high impact and greater return.
Everything we do is inspired by a love of the arts, a knowledge of business, and a belief that culture and commerce have a lot to offer one another.
Recent clients of The Revels Office and it’s network of associate consultants include the UK Crafts Council, V&A Dundee, National Museum Wales, Arts Council Wales, Southwark Council, and Battersea Arts Centre.
The Revels Office is managed by Kate Rolfe who has held management roles at major UK institutions including the National Gallery and Natural History Museum.
DDJ& is a recruitment agency and B-Corp, initiated by Bram De Jaeger and David Dixon. The team at DDJ& focusses on a new way of recruiting board members and management in the cultural sector. Much more than just the right person in the right job. Beyond the usual suspect.
As an innovative thinker and a genuine matchmaker with an extensive network in but also outside the cultural world, Bram connects people and organisations to really help build their capacity. In his daily routine he uses his network in a creative manner to help individual organisations, and eventually the cultural branch as a whole, to become more entrepreneurial and inclusive. In doing so he knows how to combine idealistic with commercial interests.
Centrum Nalatenschappen helps cultural organisations and charities to be considered in the wills of donors/visitors. In addition, we also work as executors of charitable legacies and work with our clients to sort out the intricacies of bequests. Fundraising from legacies is a question of consistent promotion but has very good financial returns. With a fully developed communication programme it is possible to bring people in a sensitive and appropriate manner to think about a legacy gift to your organisation. Training is the first step in legacy promotion. Make contact with Henk de Graaf in the first instance to talk about promoting or administering bequests.
