Snap Briefing: Spring Budget 2023
At Culture Commons, we care deeply about the creative and cultural life of the United Kingdom. That's why we work strategically across multiple sectors to co-design policy that is evidence-led, implementable and impactful.
We work with businesses in the creative industries, the publicly funded cultural sector and the research community, keeping them abreast of parliamentary, legislative and political developments and broker dialogues with policy makers at the local and national levels.
We're an organisation made up creative and cultural sector workers, politicians, policy advisor and activists, and our team has extensive experience of bringing policy from idea into law. Whatever change you want to see for your business, sector or community, we can help you in a variety of ways.
We've wanted to have more influence on policy making for years. Culture Commons opened that door. We've now put across our views to the Home Office and had a meaningful response and that's just major for us.

I look forward to working with other metro mayors and Culture Commons to ensure that London’s creative industries is even more accessible, rich and vibrant after the pandemic than it was before.

Culture Commons have really affected a step change in the traction that our research is getting with key policy stakeholders at all levels. I can't recommend them highly enough.
