CEO | The Arts Development Company
The Arts Development Company was formed in July 2015 by members of the Arts Development Team at Dorset County Council. The company is now independent of the public sector and delivers cultural development services for Dorset under contract from the County Council.
Mike is the CEO of the company having spent twenty years as Dorset’s Arts Development Officer prior to the move out. The company now has a staff of 14 and delivers services across Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole.
Key to the success of the company’s work is a county wide collaboration known as Dorset Arts Together (DAT) which is now in its tenth year and brings together over 120 organisations and individuals in an informal structure to share and work together on key projects and initiatives.
