NLHF Project Development & Planning
Tricolor can help develop all of the strategic documents you need to make your National Lottery Heritage Fund project a success. Using the most up to date resources, we can help your organisation develop both strategic and project-specific documents – business plans, activity plans, and interpretation plans.
We can work with you to develop robust, resilient business plans, based on market research, comparator consultation, and best practice datasets. We develop business plans that are based on well-researched financial assumptions and are easy to adapt as projects progress.
Our experienced consultants can also write audience-led activity plans, based on consultation with your users, and non-users. We know the secrets to a successful activity plan are meaningful engagement with audiences, rigorous pilot testing, with a pinch or two of innovation.
Our Interpretation specialists, with practice-based experience, can develop interpretation plans and exhibition designs that tell a relevant and engaging story of your heritage. We learn from audiences what they want to learn, and how, building in a little bit of ‘something special’ along the way.
We can support one, or all, of these services on a project – but find the most successful projects are where the business, activity, and interpretation planning work together avoiding silos.
