Description

AN ENQUIRY INTO THE CULTURAL RESOURCES OF THE UK’S 11 CITIES
The contribution of culture to cities is evident throughout the UK. Culture makes cities more prosperous: it has helped to catalyse urban renewal in cities and anchor regeneration. It strengthens city economies through tourism, the night-time economy and creative industries – and in attracting talented people to live, work and study.

This UK-wide enquiry brings together cities, UK Arts Councils and leaders from the cultural, education, design, development, hospitality and technology sectors. We will consider how to ensure that culture continues to improve and enrich the lives of cities and citizens in more and deeper ways.

Many studies have looked at why culture should be resourced, considering the impact on the lives of individuals and communities.

The enquiry will seek to advance the debate by taking a close look at how culture can be more effectively resourced across the UK, to multiply the benefits and ensure they can be shared by all in our society.
