We work with boroughs and other partners to develop and promote London’s cultural services, to maximise the opportunities offered through tourism and to spread the legacy benefits of the 2012 Games across the city.
Our work encompasses sport, arts, libraries, museums, heritage, parks and open spaces.
Priorities for the economy, culture and tourism team in 2013/14 include:
- Demonstrating the value of local culture and leisure services in supporting economic growth and tackling social issues
- Influencing the development of the new pan-London Pro-Active for community sport to ensure it addresses local needs
These are challenging times for borough cultural services. We have identified a number of alternative models currently being developed. Find advice, guidance and best practise.
