Kettle Partnership


Tom Bolton

Tom BoltonWorking in research and policy on design and architecture has helped Tom understand how policy-making works and how research can support organisations to achieve what they want.  As a writer, theatre and music reviewer culture is very important to him, so providing expertise to cultural organisations is an ideal mix. Within Kettle, Tom develops strategy, bringing together a network of contacts in the public sector, academia and policy researchers. “I help to make sure that the advice and services Kettle is offering are relevant and current, and that we link up the latest research and policy thinking.”

 “Brixton Live has shown how if we bring together organisations who don’t think they have much in common, they can find that they have lots, and things can really take off. I’d really like to expand the concept, build the numbers involved, and make it available beyond Brixton.”
