Town Toolkit | Introduction
Skip to main content


Every community has artists! Arts and culture are great ways of attracting people and life into town centres, and of getting the local community involved.

Cultural activities help people develop skills, develop the economy, create jobs and use spaces – so promoting culture has huge benefits to wider regeneration objectives like health, wellbeing, economic activity and community empowerment.

All this means that arts and culture aren’t just "nice to have" – they are a vital part of turning town centres around.
