Cultural Development Projects

Our Cultural Development work

Our Cultural Development Division has worked with a range of clients on municipal and regional cultural planning projects, cultural mapping projects, place-based cultural tourism initiatives, and cultural economy analysis and impact assessment projects. Through this work, we’ve helped communities and regions leverage their cultural assets to support culture-led economic development.
