Dylan Calder, Pop Up’s Executive and Creative Director, has led Pop Up through organisational growth of 375% turnover increase and 500% staff increase since he founded the organisation in 2011. His bold artistic vision – putting writers and illustrators in the driving seat, valuing diversity as integral to innovation, building audiences through participation, creating quality public-facing works through community engagement – has positioned Pop Up as a leader in the UK children’s literature sector. Claire Boulton, Pop Up’s Education & Development Director, offers a decade of experience in advising arts organisations on sustainable growth, connectivity and collaboration, and fundraising, as Relationship Manager at Arts Council England. Working together or apart they can deliver bespoke consultancy offers to like-minded organisations looking to grow and innovate.
We can work with other arts and cultural organisations on development planning, fundraising approaches, and (education, artistic, diversity and inclusion) strategies.
