“The creative industries is the fastest growing sector of the UK economy. We have the legacy, the talent and the opportunity to do more, and to use culture to unite communities, encourage investment and accelerate economic growth.” Dame Jayne-Anne Gadhia, chair of Cultural Cities Enquiry, 2019
In April 2022, we launched the Middlesbrough Cultural Capital Investment Prospectus, an investment document bringing together several capital investment opportunities, within the wider context of Middlesbrough’s Cultural Strategy.
It describes how we aim to develop those opportunities and the potential outcomes for Middlesbrough and those who invest here. It is informed by our collective insight, knowledge and ambitions, and profiles organisations who have invested in the town. Detailing their experience of being creative in Middlesbrough, the exciting opportunities for development, and the impact creativity is having on the town and its people.
Acting as a unified voice and an influential authority both regionally and nationally, the Middlesbrough Cultural Partnership has produced a prospectus that brings together the current opportunities for capital investment with Middlesbrough’s creative sector.
