About

 
Hello, I'm Richard Bromhall, and I'm a producer and programme director working in the arts and cultural sector. Since 2016, I have delivered multi-stakeholder, city-wide cultural projects in the Midlands, UK, that have reached communities locally, nationally and internationally. Working in organisations from Journey to Justice, to Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature, and through to Coventry City of Culture, I have produced projects that enabled bold and inclusive storytelling about the people and places I worked in.

I have expertise working with cultural and educational organisations to help communities make projects happen where they live. I use my experience of and skill in building brilliant relationships with stakeholders from change makers though to community leaders to co-create projects that are about communities, celebrating and amplifying its cultures, and to create opportunities for individuals and groups who do not regularly participate in arts and cultural programmes. By platforming culture and people historically absent from the sector, I'm part of an emerging movement of producers that is re-asserting what culture is to help make communities feel proud of who they are, where they come from, and the culture they do. 
 
My background is in planning and strategy and I work with organisations to help them grow and become operationally sustainable and compliant. I implement policy, find funding and develop plans to deliver projects communities want while embedding them in the sector's national strategic aims.

I have a strong track record of working with universities and translating academic research into accessible cultural outputs for public engagement. With a PhD in English Literature, I understand academic research priorities and jargon, and I morph new knowledge into engaging exhibitions and activities. Particularly important is embedding this knowledge in schools and communities, and I work with young people to create resources for dissemination that last beyond the duration of the projects I work on. Working with academic and professional services staff since 2011, I have developed an in-depth understanding of engagement with, and in and out of, universities.

I enjoy working across art forms and have delivered activities in music, dance, drama, sport, spoken word, literature and festivals. I have experience in delivering activities from intimate workshops and conferences to activities in found places and large-scale outdoor events. My aim is to get the right people around the table, dream big, and make magic happen.
