Bluecoat, LiverpoolMidland Creative Projects Limited more than met our brief and are value for money in every sense. They took time to understand the Bluecoat and what
we were trying to achieve, establishing a good two-way working relationship from the outset. They challenged and stimulated our thinking throughout the process, and we felt they had really ‘inhabited’ our organisation whilst at the same time maintaining an external objectivity. The result was an excellent document that was instrumental in us securing significant funding for a two year literature development.”

Bryan Biggs, Artistic Director, Bluecoat, Liverpool.

“The process of developing a Literature Development Framework for Bournemouth and Poole was facilitated by Midland Creative Projects Limited. Their expertise and extensive knowledge of literature development coupled with their ability to help the various partners focus clearly on the concepts and ideas involved has resulted in a comprehensive yet manageable framework for future action.”

“In 2009-2010, thanks to Jonathan Davidson of Midland Creative Projects Limited, we were able to establish a unique year long cooperation between the Dutch Foundation for Literature and Arts Council England, who generously supported a promotional project about modern Dutch literature, ‘Go Dutch’.  Jonathan Davidson not only took care of the fundraising, he also helped create and run the project with insight and enthusiasm. He has been great to work with and he has been our guide and saviour all year long.”
