A central element of SELEP’s function is to promote important sectors which enable economic growth in the region. The Creative and Cultural Sector is one of these important regional growth enablers.

This sector is supported by the implementation of a number of local and regional strategies and plans, as well as regular engagement through the South East Creative Economy Network (SECEN). Further information on SECEN can be found here.

SELEP is also focusing on economic recovery and renewal, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and is developing a strategy to focus the targeted intervention in this area. Part of this will be a focus on communities of the future and how high streets and town centres can continue to be important economic hubs for places across the South East.

Purpose of Commission

The aim of this project is to develop a better understanding of, and economic modelling for, embedding cultural and creative organisations within high streets through:

  • Alignment of data capture and impact measurement across high streets.
  • Helping proposals for the use of transitionary space across high streets to utilise existing learning and share methodologies and impact measurement across the SELEP area.
  • Identifying frameworks and methodologies for public realm activation within a High Street context and sharing thinking on the role of public realm attractor events in post-Covid high streets.
