Welcome
Arts, culture, heritage and the creative economy can make a real difference to the community, the city, the local economy.
Even in hard times. Especially in hard times.

We engage the passion and energy of artists, cultural producers, creative businesses, local government and communities.

We want to help transform places so that they are great for everyone.

DPA is a research and development practice.

Our specialist subjects include culture and regeneration, place making, and local arts ecologies.

We offer lateral thinking, passion and advocacy.

We are interested in unusual projects.

Look at how our projects worked for our clients and partners.
