What's the local culture and creative story?

Brighton and Hove
Over a five year period, DPA charted the size and impact of the cultural and creative economy in Brighton and Hove, working with the city's political and creative sector leadership to identify some of the city's key strengths and Creative Industries strategy in Brighton & Hove

Kings Cross
Researching the Kings Cross development site and its immediate“fringe, DPA identified existing and evolving creative business clusters, and set out the organisational structure and development direction for Create KX, a partnership body championing the role of cultural institutions and creative businesses in and around the Kings Cross development.

DPA worked with Create KX on further stages of this research, to evaluate the impact of the development, the opening of International Rail Station, and the first round of commercial and cultural development on the locality. Kings Cross, a Creative Gateway  

Thames Gateway
Acting as lead creative and cultural strategist, DPA helped TGLP commission research into the role of the creative sector in Europe's largest regeneration area.
Baseline research in 2001
• Managing TGLP's research, conducted by URS in 2004, into the design, publishing and printing, and computer services sectors;
• Working with Arts Council England to manage the development of Tom Fleming and Alan Dix’s Thames Gateway London arts strategy

DPA understood our hunch about creative industries in Brighton and Hove and had the ability in and understanding of the field to put the figures on the idea. They also understood the need for advocacy and how to create momentum behind the idea that we were a creative city. Their work has been the solid base from which much, both economic and creative, has sprung.
