Nottingham reveals European vision to lead the way in culture and creativity

February 5th 2019

Nottingham could become a leading European city for culture and creativity according to a new report. The news comes as prepares to unveil the future of the city’s Creative Quarter at an exclusive lunch event on Friday.

The Culture Cities Enquiry, chaired by Virgin Money Boss Jayne-Anne Gadhia, has published its recommendations today (Tuesday 5 February). It brought together leaders from across the cultural, education, design, hospitality and city leadership sectors to explore how the UK could better use culture to unlock its potential, promote thriving communities and enable cities to compete successfully for talent, tourism and business investment.

Some of the Enquiry’s key recommendations include:

– Cities should establish cultural agreements to create and establish a stronger vision for culture
– Cultural organisations in the city should look at stronger ways to share professional expertise
– Local business and investors should be given incentives to invest in cultural ventures
– The Government should encourage and extend tax relief opportunities across the creative and cultural sector

The Enquiry’s recommendations have been welcomed in Nottingham. The city’s Strategic Cultural Partnership (SCP) brings together the City Council, University of Nottingham, Nottingham Trent University, Marketing NG, One Nottingham and Nottingham’s Creative Quarter to build on the Cultural Statement and Framework already written for the City.

Information about 'Unveil the future of the city’s Creative Quarter' this Friday.
