At thrive we value ongoing professional and personal development. Our events programme has been designed to tackle those challenges which affect the cultural sector collectively. They also provide space to be inspired by new ideas or have those productive 'coffee break' conversations...

But sometimes it has to be more about you – help to solve your individual challenge. We know everyone’s problems are different, so your session will be designed around your context, people and budget. 

To discuss your training needs with a member of the team please contact us.

Here are some examples of sessions we’ve designed and run recently.


GDPR became law back in May, but GDPR compliance is an ongoing journey. We've run bespoke GDPR sessions with sixteen cultural organisations and councils in Northern Ireland and England.
