The West of England Cultural Compact aims to focus and amplify the role of culture in the region, as a driver for economic success, placemaking, community cohesion and personal wellbeing.
The West of England Cultural Compact is an agreement between local and regional government and Arts Council England; to engage with this strategic application of culture, the arts and creativity for the benefit of people in the area.
Wider membership is reviewed on an annual basis enabling the West of England Cultural Compact to remain dynamic and responsive to regional priorities and to reflect the anticipated breadth and depth of cross-sector partnership working.
