A New Strategic Approach to the Development of Culture in Portsmouth
Our report, which was commissioned by Victorious and by Arts Council England, brought together the responses from over 50 interviews with a wide range of stakeholders working in the creative sector in the city.
A broad consensus started to emerge relatively early in the consultation process that the sector was looking for swift and bold action rather than for beautifully crafted five-year plans, and it became very clear that our report needed to focus on delivery. How could Portsmouth deliver the step-change that everyone felt was necessary? We have put forward an exciting and dynamic solution, which is currently being discussed by all the major stakeholders, and we hope that it will be implemented before the end of the year.
