Great Place Programme Evaluation (England): Final Report

Arts Council England and The National Lottery Heritage Fund (the Heritage Fund) launched the Great Place scheme in August 2016. The scheme responded to recommendations made in the government’s Culture White Paper (March 2016) and aimed to, “pilot new approaches that enable cultural and community groups to work more closely together and to place heritage at the heart of communities.”

Great Place aimed to ensure that local investment in arts and culture could make the greatest impact on the economy, jobs, education, community cohesion and health and wellbeing of those areas. It piloted new approaches to local investment, and sought to nurture long-term impact in places by encouraging cross-sector partnerships and raising the visibility of arts and culture for both policy makers and local citizens.
