AEA works with clients at the earliest possible stage to develop successful project strategies, whether in the context of a new cultural facility, policy, or program. We help articulate the project’s goals and rationale; explore the possible routes to deliver it; and confirm the optimum way forward.
AEA is a leader in the planning and delivery of a wide variety of cultural & creative spaces, including cultural districts, mixed-use developments, museums and galleries, performance spaces, multi-disciplinary spaces, parks, and heritage sites. We deliver plans that pay close attention to what is required for long-term operating and financial success, and that include actionable road maps and evaluation metrics.
AEA's recommendations to our clients are underpinned by robust empiricism and unparalleled knowledge of the cultural & creative sector. We gather the facts, whether quantitative or qualitative; we parse, test, and analyze them; and challenge wishful thinking. Our customized studies combine proven methodologies and objective analysis with a sensitive understanding of our clients and the context in which they operate.
