Check the latest coronavirus information, including what support is available and how it has affected our services

Advocacy, evidence and communication

We sit at the crossroad of local communities, businesses, our own operations, other local authorities, and other agencies working in and influencing the city. We're able to listen, share knowledge and ensure that multiple and sometimes competing points of view are taken into account.

Advocacy

We advocate, both internally and externally, for the role of arts and culture in achieving our priorities and the vision of Inspiring Cambridge.

We do this through existing networks and forums including the Greater Cambridge Partnership, and through opportunities to talk to a variety of groups.

Evidence

There's an increasing amount of evidence demonstrating the wider benefits of arts and cultural engagement, both economic and social.

We share this evidence, in particular where there's a clear link back to our priorities. We also work with others to support the collection of high quality evidence.

Communication

We’re a source of information about arts and culture in the city, through our website and the Cambridge Arts Network.

Cambridge Arts Network has more than 1,000 members - individuals and organisations that make up the arts and cultural offering in and around Cambridge. It's a free resource for news, projects and opportunities, and members can add their own information directly to the site.

Our Creative at Home newsletter lists creative and cultural content that you can experience at home. We produce it to keep the community connected to local arts and culture during the coronavirus pandemic. We publish it every two weeks.
