About Art After Death

We work in the business of making ideas into reality. We help our clients with projects in all areas of creative and cultural practice, working in partnership, with vision and imagination. We are unique in business consultancy in that we donít fit your ideas into existing frameworks. Instead, like you, we start with the vision of the end result, and we find the structures and strategies that enable you to achieve your goals.

Our approach is characterised by a detailed understanding of creativity, creative arts practice and cultural organisations, linked to our ability to offer customised services that meet the needs, style and culture of our clients. Our clients demonstrate a high level of professional expertise in their chosen fields of operation. Their motivation and ultimate goals are primarily the achievement of artistic excellence. Whilst our clients also strive to achieve profitability, this is a secondary concern. Our partners have specialised in creative arts and cultural business consultancy for many years. We have pooled our knowledge and experience in recent years to work in partnership: our focus is to support creative artists and cultural organisations to establish and develop themselves. The principal consultants for Art after Death are:
