Programme Producers and Partners

AD:Vantage is produced by Helga Henry and Lara Ratnaraja.  We are independent arts consultants with a particular interest in developing leadership talent in the arts, culture and heritage sectors.  Previously we have delivered programmes in Birmingham including RE:Present and ASTON-ish.  These programmes, like AD:Vantage were designed to transform the diversity of cultural leadership.  You can find out more about them and us in the FAQs (Jump to FAQ).

The programme is funded by Coventry City Council and we are working in partnership with New Art West Midlands, Coventry Biennial and Warwick University.
