What's the Story?
Culture Croft is a creative and cultural consultancy specialising in research, planning and evaluation projects, founded by Lindsay Dunbar, a “cultural crofter”. Generally, the organisation often brings together a team from a range of different backgrounds and expertise in order to deliver unique, high quality work based on the needs of each individual client. No two projects are the same so the best team is brought together to nurture and respond to the individual needs.
With 15 years of experience as a strategic leader, project manager and innovation producer, Lindsay nurtures and tends to creative projects in rural areas. Selected as the Creative Scotland Fellow 17/18 for the prestigious Clore Leadership programme, she used this opportunity to explore a values-led process, addressing issues of representation throughout her work, ensuring every voice can be heard and help every project reach it’s potential.
A busy researcher, she works on projects which focus on the creative industries, specialising in a community and rural context. She recently completed research on Creative Hubs in Scotland for the British Council and is soon to embark on further research for the Arts and Humanities Research Council into Cultural Leadership on the peripheries of Scotland. An accredited LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator, she is experienced in facilitating workshops and sessions with a variety of people, from industry professionals to community members.
Lindsay has worked with various organisations to facilitate workshops, provide research and deliver projects, these include: Impact Hub Inverness, Dance North, Social Enterprise Academy, SHIFT Festival, The Touring Network, Indepen-Dance, Sound Systems, Regional Screen Scotland, Eden Communities, Baillie Gifford & Co, Visible Fictions and Zanna Creative.
Lindsay is delighted to be chair of SEALL and Take One Action Film Festival, as well as serving on the board of Puppet Animation Scotland.
