Everyman & Playhouse Theatres (E&P) stepped out of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio when its critically well received but financially challenging repertory theatre season programme created financial difficulties for the organisation.
E&P chose to stand back, reflect and rethink its vision, mission and purpose to inform its future direction.
Working in partnership with John Knell, Intelligence Consulting and the Interim Chief Executive, we facilitated and delivered a 360 degree review and visioning process bringing in every department in the organisation, major stakeholders and funders.
This in-depth process helped the team to articulate the qualities that make the two theatres distinctive, not just in the city but nationally to create a unifying new vision for the company.
We worked with the senior management team to create a new business plan to submit to Arts Council England in 2019.
During the business plan process, the senior management team engaged with new stakeholders in new sectors to establish new partnerships to engage more deeply with Liverpool City Region communities.
Fiona Gibson, Interim Chief Executive
E&P was readmitted to Arts Council England's National Portfolio with an agreed funding package in place.
Following the completion of the business plan, E&P appointed a new Chief Executive from within the existing team following an open recruitment process.
E&P has a long track record of working with communities but now its commitment to community-led work, consultation and collaboration is more visible through its Creative Communities integrated programme of work.
