As part of the run-up to its Tercentenary Anniversary in 2014, on 13th July 2010 the Radcliffe Trust organised a Round Table with a number of key players in the Heritage & Crafts sector. The purpose of this exploratory meeting was to open up a constructive dialogue between funders and beneficiaries and to start identifying the main issues affecting the sector as well as ways in which, over time, we can work together to address these.
Nineteen organisations attended the meeting*. These were divided approximately equally between public and independent funders, stakeholders and grant beneficiaries. All participants had provided briefing notes in advance of the meeting, giving background information on their organisations and raising the issues of most concern to them.
The following documents provide more detail on the background, aims and outcomes of this event:
