Value of arts and culture in place-shaping | Arts Council England

In October 2018 Arts Council England commissioned Wavehill Ltd. to deliver a research project to aid their understanding and help them to articulate if and how the arts and cultural offer within a place can attract and retain individuals and businesses and help to shape its identity. In broad terms this research seeks to generate further evidence to support the notion that arts and culture has the ability to promote and drive positive economic and social outcomes at a local level and thus contribute effectively to a place-shaping approach. This report presents themes from primary data collection to inform Arts Council England’s thinking in this area.
