BCP Cultural Collective is a consortium of partners including BCP Council, Arts Council England, Arts University Bournemouth, Bournemouth University, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Lighthouse Poole and Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership aiming to shape Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole’s cultural initiatives.

The Brief

The initiative approached HotShot to develop a basic conference website in a short turn-around period. The site was required to hold numerous reports, case studies, event information, speaker profiles and event running order. Additionally, HotShot was required to develop social media channels for the consortium and create the branding and content for the initiative.

The Delivery

With such a short amount of time available, HotShot had to quickly develop the colour palette and brand guide for the BCP Cultural Collective. Upon completion, HotShot utilised a WordPress system to establish an information hub that held all of the speaker profiles and event details. Additionally, HotShot integrated a method to facilitate a live stream from the event to allow individuals that could not attend to contribute to discussions surrounding the future cultural direction of their conurbation.

The Results

The website was completed on time and within budget for BCP Cultural Collective and will be available for future events and conferences the initiative will hold.
