The Institute of Cultural Capital conducted this scoping study for the Arts and Humanities Research Council in 2017.
The study assessed the value of the emerging Culture and Education District (CED, rebranded as East Bank since 2018) in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This is a case study of a ‘creative clustering’ in the making.
Commissioned by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the main aim of this research was to lay the foundation for a large open call on research into the multiple impacts of this new district. The study involved ten months of expert observation and analysis by a multidisciplinary research team led by Dr Beatriz Garcia, with Dr Michael Atkins as lead research support and Stephen Crone as report editor.
In conducting this research, the Institute of Cultural Capital & the University of Liverpool (Image and Governance strand) worked in collaboration with the What Works Research Centre & the London School of Economics (Economic strand), City University (Creative strand) and Loughbourough University (Social strand).
