The University of Exeter has appointed an Impact & Partnership Development Officer, Belinda Dillon, with a focus on Culture. Belinda’s remit includes supporting the Exeter Cultural Partnership (ECP) with its strategy plans for one day a week. This role begins before the new Chair and Director are appointed in early 2018 and provides bridging delivery and support over the coming months, alongside the interim Chair, Nikki Sved.
Hosted within the University’s Innovation, Impact and Business Directorate (IIB), the role is funded by the University of Exeter, Arts Council England, Exeter City Council, Exeter Business Improvement District and Exeter College, and will provide administrative and communications support.
ECP’s recent work has been to improve communications, build confidence and develop opportunities for sharing learning across the arts and culture ecosystem. The new Culture Officer will provide capacity to ensure that ECP continues to develop in direction and effectiveness.
The new collaborative funding model increases ECP’s sustainability, and enables greater reach through website improvements and social media activity. While attention to this area of activity during 2015-17 established a solid platform for this, the period 2018-20 will see a significant reach to new audiences. The ECP assistant will support this area of work in particular.
