Cultural strategies, compacts and futures

Project overview

This Public Policy Southampton funded project examines how local authorities in England are aligning culture with place, health and the environment through cultural strategies and compacts. Employing a mixed methods research design and convening a knowledge exchange workshop, this project will provide analysis enabling local authorities to reflect on and explore how cultural strategies and compacts engage with place, health, environment, and other priority issues.
