Chaired by the Lord Mayor in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Culture Mile, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce assembles leading figures from across the capital to address the massive challenges faced by the cultural and creative industries in the City, and London more widely, through better connecting the cultural and commercial sectors. Find out more about the members of the Taskforce.
The Culture & Commerce Taskforce believes that by coming together, culture and commerce can develop new ways of collaborating, to build a renewed creative sector that drives economic growth and supports competitive advantage for the City and London. The Taskforce’s latest report is called Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal and includes eight newly commissioned artworks from a wide-range of artist, which can be viewed below.
Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal outlines three key recommendations and 10 proposed projects where culture and commerce can work together for mutual benefit. Working together will accelerate London’s post-pandemic recovery and help secure its position as one of the best international cities in which to live, work, visit and invest.
The Taskforce seeks partners from across London who are able to contribute to the delivery and potentially take on a leadership role in progressing one of more of the ten projects.
