Tourism & Culture in the Lakes

Alex and Helen’s ideas and facilitation on the day really helped make our event productive and positive.

Usha Mistry, Lakes Culture

As they gear up for a second-round of Cultural Destinations funding, Lakes Culture held a workshop to raise ambition and encourage bold thinking with culture and tourism partners from across the Lake District. In the lovely surroundings of the Daffodil Hotel & Spa in Grasmere, Alex and Helen delivered a hands-on session. Delegates were guided through practical activities designed to get the best out of cross-sector collaborative working and identify and overcome some of the regular misunderstandings that occur between different sectors.  Drawing on direct experience from Creative Tourist’s Culture Hosts programme in Manchester, the session compared the city-centre experience with the rural and it was fascinating and reassuring to see that the challenges (and solutions) are the same.
