Culture’s role in London’s development and regeneration 


The coronavirus crisis has undoubtedly distressed the cultural sector, its major institutions and key workers. One in six jobs in London is a creative one, with 64 per cent of workers in the creative industries being self-employed. How will the pandemic reshape the future of the creative industries? 
 
London is one of the world’s great cultural cities, with an unrivalled artistic offer. Creative industries are worth some £87 billion to the UK economy, driving tourism and attracting talented staff from around the globe. But even before the pandemic challenges abounded, not least the loss of 35 per cent of the capital’s music venues over the last eight years and the continuing loss of artist studios. 
 
This year-round programme explores the role of culture in regeneration and development, the transformation of London’s cultural institutions, and the continued development of the capital’s night-time economy. As London strives to recover building back better after the pandemic, NLA investigates how the rich and unique culture and character of the capital can be maintained, celebrated and enhanced.
