Arts, Culture and the Creative Industries
A unique strand of our work is concerned
with our creative industries sector partners who utilise
artistic and cultural activity to:
- create innovative pathways to economic and social
- develops new skills for new jobs and foster
wider employability and skills
- nurture the 'talent pool' of young people who
have been otherwise alienated by mainstream and 'traditional'
- develop creative and innovative enterprise and
employment programmes for entry in to the Creative and Cultural
Industries - one of the UK's genuine (and growing) 'world class'
Rinova's founder, Richard Parkes, is a music graduate
who spent his early career working in the arts sector. He says
"As someone involved in development work for 25 years, I
have always believed that there is something intrinsic in doing
that work through artistic and cultural activity which is very
special, empowering people in ways that really work, and offering a
unique contribution to social and economic development. "
