Ashburton Arts is a community organisation (not-for-profit company limited by guarantee). It was set up in 2017 with the primary aim of buying and transforming a redundant Methodist Church into a vibrant arts centre for the community of Ashburton and surrounding areas. We successfully raised £185k in pledges of donations and loans which allowed us to buy the old church at auction in July 2017.

Ashburton Arts has been successful in obtaining a project viability grant from the Architectural Heritage Fund to bring in dedicated support to identify a sustainable business plan for the future. This work is to be led by a freelance Business Consultant, contracted and managed by the Board of Ashburton Arts Ltd.

We anticipate the Business Consultancy period should be around three months, starting July 2021.

The available fee is £5,750 to include expenses and VAT, contracted and managed by the Board of Ashburton Arts.
