Policy Forum for London

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


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.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for London seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
