Culture and Place in Britain

Culture and Place in Britain report cover
February 6, 2023
Culture and place in Britain, published by Key Cities in partnership with Arts Council England, reviews culture policy and data in urban areas across the UK with particular focus on the 27 member cities of the network.

The report recommends that the Government invest £100m in the development of creative industries microclusters outside the existing Creative Clusters. It proposes putting culture at the heart of a renewed drive for hyperlocal devolution to empower communities and drive local growth.

Other recommendations focus on promoting local Cultural Compacts, improved monitoring and data collection to support investment in culture, and collaboration between cities and towns throughout the UK and beyond to leverage the benefits of culture for people and places.
