Founded on the firm belief that art is the territory of the many and not the province of the few, Cultural Development Consulting (CDC) works to extend visual ‘conversations’ locally, nationally and internationally. It does so by combining creativity, expertise and research, to provide a range of future-focused professional services that promote greater cultural dialogue through the visual arts.
CDC projects do more than put art on the walls. They work inter-culturally to open up new ideas and establish new connections. Alasdair Foster, CDC’s founding consultant, creates innovative, engaging and at times challenging exhibitions that win both critical and popular acclaim. Clients include national and regional art museums, city and university galleries and international festivals.
Alasdair Foster is a consultant specialising in international cultural projects and a researcher in the theory of arts policy formation. He has 20 years’ experience heading national arts institutions in Europe and Australia and over 35 years of working in the not-for-profit sector (both as a board member and as an employee).
