The role of culture, heritage and sport in place-shaping

In 2015 the CASE programme commissioned our team (whilst working at TBR), along with Middlesex University and NEF Consulting, to undertake an important and ground-breaking study examining the role that cultural, sporting and heritage assets and investment play in shaping local places.

This study focused on generating evidence to support the argument that culture, heritage and sports infrastructure and investment have the ability to promote economic and social outcomes. The stated aim of the study was to examine the extent to which culture, heritage and sport infrastructure and investment within a place influence (through direct and indirect impacts, tangible and intangible) the economy and society of that place.
