Advocacy, evidence and communication

We sit at the cross roads 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, for example, the Cambridge City Deal, Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Partnership, and also through opportunities to talk to a variety of groups.  

If you know of a body or a group that would like to know more, email us at: artsandculture@cambridge.gov.uk.

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, the vision of Inspiring Cambridge, and the activity of the thematic partnerships.

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 - a forum of over 1,100 people interested in arts and culture, including professional artists, and arts and cultural organisations operating in Cambridge and the surrounding area.
