St Ives will be a place which celebrates its living heritage – a town which creates the conditions for its unique landscape, heritage, culture, creative industries and events to thrive and inspire for future generations.
St Ives will be a place where….
…..cultural organisations are plentiful, entrepreneurial and innovative, contributing to prosperity and wellbeing, and supporting a culture that is richly creative, diverse and internationally distinctive.
This group will investigate project concept ideas from the cultural and heritage sphere in St Ives, both to understand where there are potential gaps in current local provision and where linkages can be developed to enhance existing and new initiatives.
The group will liaise with other groups and agencies locally and beyond where there are similar or potentially linked initiatives to explore synergies, avoid duplication, establish demand and study outcomes.
The group will produce an outline plan to assist:
St Ives is deeply grounded in its striking landscape, proud industrial and fishing heritage and renowned creative influences – its distinctive cultural landscape lies at the heart both of the community and the economy.
The group seeks to support prosperity in the town through projects which can coalesce around both the living heritage and industrial innovation; which in turn allow people in St Ives to be part of a sustainable, resilient economy.
