Retail Resilience Programme | The Association for Cultural Enterprises

Retail Resilience Programme

The ACE Retail Resilience Programme has helped to improve the sustainability of smaller regional venues by making high quality training and resources accessible. This transformative three year project was made possible with funding from Arts Council England, and has delivered core retail skills to over 200 participants from 180 accredited museums. 

The Retail Resilience Programme has enabled us to create some fantastic ongoing resources which are available to all cultural retail professionals:

Regional Talking Shops - an easy way to network with other cultural venues in your region, these regular forums include case studies and guest speakers and are a great way of sharing knowledge and best practice.

CultureShop.tv - a ten part series of short films on cultural retail packed full of advice, ideas and insights with downloadable fact sheets. 

ACE Retail Benchmarker - a free online tool enabling you to monitor, analyse and compare your KPIs.

We will be continuing to deliver first rate commercial training and support across the cultural sector with the new Online Academy, coming soon. Look out for more news on this in the ACE Weekly Update.
