Partnership with Bluefin Insurance to bring a significant new service to arts organisations


Arts Quarter has announced that it is partnering with Bluefin Insurance to offer the UK arts sector advice and access to the best insurance deals for their specific needs.


The first of these new services launched today is the Insurance Stress Test, a detailed check of arts organisation's current insurance programme undertaken by Bluefin’s team of specialists working in the not-for-profit sector. Bluefin will review whether current insurance policies provide effective cover for all your activities and identify any areas that might need improving.


John Nicholls, Managing Partner, Arts Quarter, commented: 'There continue to be many challenges for arts organisations following the global recession and our role has been one of supporting individual organisations and the wider sector to adjust to this new economic order. In our continuing role of helping organisations to cut core costs so that they can continue to thrive creatively, we are pleased to appoint Bluefin as our insurance broker of choice for the arts sector. Due to the diverse nature of our sector we have looked for a partner that is flexible and one that can respond to the needs of arts organisations and we are pleased that we have found that in Bluefin.'

Kit Strachan, Executive Director, who heads up Bluefin's charity team, commented: 'We are delighted to be working with Arts Quarter on this exciting development for the culture sector. We have a lot of experience in the ‘not for profit’ and arts sector so it is fantastic to partner with an organisation that lies at the heart of the UK arts sector. We understand that with pressures on funding, insurance can be the last thing on the minds of those trying to maintain artistic programming in a tough economy but we have an important part to play in ensuring that the insurance they are purchasing is both cost efficient and effective.'
