Golant Innovation is an innovation agency working across the creative, digital, third and public sectors, particularly with organisations in the arts, culture and heritage sectors. Founded in 2005, we became part of The Audience Agency Group in 2018. People come to us with hard challenges. One client joked that she knew it was time to call us in when she couldn’t even describe the problem she had, let alone find the solution!
The approaches we take to solving these challenges are:
• Use design thinking to collaboratively co-design physical and digital solutions with our clients.
• Spot and translate relevant innovations from other sectors.
• Develop business models with cultural, social and economic value.
• Think long-term and imagine what future contexts for arts, culture and heritage will be.
We have helped many organisations work out the best way to manage their digital assets. We are experienced at helping them evaluate their assets, data and workflows, collating their functional requirements and making the business case. Our clients include, among others:
• Royal Shakespeare Company
• Royal Opera House
• Historic England
We understand that successful innovation starts with working out the user need, creating a business case and making sure that people and organisations are organised so that they can adopt the necessary change. Only then is it possible to specify technologies and the data.
