Policy Forum for London

The future for arts and culture in London - increasing participation, funding challenges and the Cultural Infrastructure Plan

Morning, Tuesday, 24th April 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



With the Mayor of London making culture and creative industries a key priority, this timely seminar will consider next steps for policy and the sector in supporting growth and promoting London’s position as the global cultural capital.


Delegates will discuss the latest developments in implementing the Mayor’s Core Cultural Programme, including priorities for the Cultural Infrastructure Plan which will identify what is needed to sustain London’s future as a cultural capital and strategies for protecting existing venues and creating spaces for new artists.


They will also examine the recommendations of the Regeneration Committee Creative tensions report on optimising the benefits of culture through regeneration.


The agenda also looks at what more can be done to underpin sector resilience - including diversifying revenue streams, developing creative and commercial partnerships and improving asset management - as well as priorities for improving participation, access and inclusion in the arts across the Capital.


Further sessions focus on maintaining London’s international competitiveness and the potential impact of Brexit, looking at issues around access to talent and skills, innovation and driving tourism, as well consider the sector’s role in the wider social and economic growth of the Capital.
