Cultural Planning

What is Cultural Planning?

Arts and culture play an integral and valuable role in making prosperous, healthy and attractive places. Bringing people together, arts and culture provide a sense of vitality in our local areas; on our high streets, our town centres and in regeneration areas; contributing much to the current and future health and growth of where we live, work and play.

Cultural Planning supports place making through considering what arts and cultural infrastructure can be secured through redevelopment and the planning process.

Enable (including Pump House Gallery) has provided strategic leadership, projects and support for external partners in the regeneration and retail sectors, including for Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership. With our partners, we have secured temporary and long term subsidised spaces for cultural occupiers and created tangible opportunities for artists, creative organisations and communities, and learning opportunities for young people with creative participation at the heart. Enable Arts works closely with Wandsworth Council across redevelopment and policy.

Public funding such as via the GLA and Arts Council England, can facilitate local regeneration and cultural programming. Enable secures new funding and project delivery and participates in working groups to champion and embed arts and culture through new urban design improvements.
