Culture Forum North is an open network of partnerships between cultural and higher education organisations in the North of England.  The Forum acts as a platform for the collation, creation and dissemination of knowledge and models of good practice in partnership working, that provide a useful resource for our sectors.

The Forum has three key agendas: Research; Cultural & Creative Careers; and Public Engagement.

An Arts Council England Project Initiation grant has been secured to undertake data-gathering that will support knowledge-sharing and collaborative practice in those areas.
