The future of

local cultural decision making 

An open policy development programme

Culture Commons are convening the creative, cultural and heritage sectors, local governments and leading researchers to explore the future of 'devolution' and increased local decision making in the UK. 


This 12-month open policy development programme will ultimately shape a suite of new policies that will support a more equitable and sustainable creative, cultural and heritage ecosystem in all regions and the four nations of the UK.

With a general election on the horizon, now is the perfect moment to bring a coalition of partners together to think about what our local creative, cultural and heritage ecosystems might need from national policymakers in the coming years.
