KNOWLEDGE SHARE

Over the years, Torbay Culture has brought together people from across and beyond the cultural sector to explore different aspects of cultural policy and delivery. We have heard about innovative work within and beyond Torbay and met some incredible people. What we have learned continues to inform and inspire our work. We hope you find it useful too, shared here by theme.
