By investing in the cultural infrastructure and creative ecosystem of a place, we stimulate its ability to attract and retain talent. Compacts can support place-based approached to develop local talent and calibrate local creative enterprises. Alongside this, small amounts of investment can open up under utilised space for cultural activities and host early stage creative ventures, creating a positive feedback effect… Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Independent Chair of the Culture Cities Enquiry
