Arts, Culture and the Creative Industries
A unique strand of our work is the work
that we do with our partners from the cultural and creative
industries, who utilise artistic and cultural activity to:
- create innovative pathways to economic and social
- develop 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'
- run creative and innovative enterprise and
employment programmes for entry into 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 who has worked in economic and community
development work for some 30 years, I have always
believed that there is something intrinsic in artistic and
cultural activity which is very effective. I have seen
it empower people in ways that really work, offering a unique
contribution to social and economic development. "
