TCCE (The Culture Capital Exchange) is an experienced leader with a robust track record in designing, developing and delivering successful, effective, and ground-breaking collaborations and Knowledge Exchange programmes between Higher Education and the arts and cultural sectors for mutual benefit and wider impact.
We were established as LCACE (London Centre for Arts and Cultural Exchange) in 2005 with Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) funding and were the first university-led network to focus specifically on knowledge exchange, collaboration and wider engagement between the research base and the arts, cultural and creative sectors.
We rebranded as TCCE, becoming an independent company in 2011, and with extensive networks in and knowledge of both sectors, we continue to pioneer developments in our fields of expertise.
TCCE designs, develops and delivers programmes, events and resources to catalyse and support Research Collaborations, Knowledge Exchange and Public Engagement. We also work into wider challenge areas for research, the arts and more widely across our lives, such as resilience, health and digital creativity.
Many of our larger-scale programmes are developed in collaboration with funders and partners from academia and beyond. Some examples of these include: Boosting Resilience, The Exchange, funded by Arts Council England (ACE) and Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and Creativeworks London funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Partnership, collaboration and knowledge exchange, in its widest sense, are at the heart of everything we do. We focus particularly on bringing Higher Education together with arts, culture and creative sector and further afield for mutual exchange and wider social, cultural, environmental and economic benefit.
TCCE has 11 core members, works with over 40 partners in London through our work on Creativeworks London and over 20 partners across England through our work on The Exchange. We also work with many cultural and creative organisations and individual collaborators in the delivery of our annual programme of activities.
