An Introduction to Small Change®

The programme is designed to help cultural organisations act and work together with others to support a step change in cultural education in London. It is based on an action learning method and turns the usual approach to change on its head.

Instead of focussing on big goals that can feel daunting, it encourages participants to think about the small things they can do right now at no or low cost to improve the way they work.

The Small Change® programme has been developed by Dr. Dawn Langley of Alchemy Research and Consultancy and is being delivered in partnership with A New Direction.

Together we have delivered three taster sessions, looking at change theory, mapping our reactions to change and deciding on a small change we want to undertake.

Those who attended (as well as those who are interested but could not attend) are now invited to express interest in the full programme.

How does it work?

The full Small Change® programme will take places across four face to face group sessions with two week breaks in between, as well as one individual telephone/Skype coaching session.

Participants will be supported through the process of identifying, testing, revising and implementing the small changes they want to make in their practice.


The 2017 Small Change® programme is now over. However, we will soon be releasing details of how to join the next cohort - sign up to our newsletter to stay up to date.
