Culture: A tool for strategic change in place management

Posted on: May 29th, 2024 by ctceditor

CTConsults’ approach to place is to explore how some key differentiating elements intersect and contribute to the whole place. Culture, heritage, tourism and digital transformation can come together to build better relationships between places and their people, whether locals, visitors or investors.

We are proud to be a partner of the Institute of Place Management, based at Manchester Metropolitan University. Amy Lewis, our Culture & Place Consultant, has written a blog all about how to use culture as a tool for structural change in place management approaches. It features good practice from many of our clients, and includes a series of provocations that place shapers can use to assess their own practice.

Just as place management structures include a core cohort of representatives from local government, education, health, voluntary / social / community / faith organisations, business and anchor institutions and employers – so it should include creative thinking via local artists and creatives.”

The Institute of Place Management researches and offers qualifications in multiple aspects of place management, including running the BID Foundation, the High Streets Task Force and the Vacant Shops Academy. More information can be found here: https://www.placemanagement.org/
