Creative and Cultural Sectors
The creative and cultural sectors are some of the UK's most dynamic and important sectors. Not only did they generation £116bn of GVA just before the pandemic, they are responsible for a series of positive spill-over impacts for the communities they live and work in.
We regularly work with clients and partners in professional networks, trade bodies, trade unions, sub-sectoral leaders, arms length bodies, grant giving organisations and individual partitioners with a focus on the creative and cultural sectors.
Our team has worked in the creative and cultural sectors - both as leaders of organisations, but also as freelance, self-employed and atypical workers. In fact, some of our team are still working in the creative and cultural sectors part-time to this day, fusing their experiences in policy making and practice, helping us to keep our finger on the pulse.

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.
