Chaired by the Lord Mayor in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Culture Mile, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce assembled leading figures from across the capital to address the massive challenges faced by the cultural and creative industries in the City, and London more widely, through better connecting the cultural and commercial sectors.
The Culture & Commerce Taskforce believes that by coming together, culture and commerce can develop new ways of collaborating, to build a renewed creative sector that drives economic growth and supports competitive advantage for the City and London.

Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal outlined three key recommendations and 10 proposed projects where culture and commerce could work together for mutual benefit, accelerating London’s post-pandemic recovery and helping to secure its position as one of the best international cities in which to live, work, visit and invest.
A year on from the launch of the Culture & Commerce Taskforce and armed with learnings from the Fuelling Creative Renewal report, new and innovative models have now been tried, tested and shown to work.
This new report celebrates and reflects upon a year of collaboration between cultural and commercial sectors that has stimulated economic growth and shown that by working together we can have a stronger impact on recovery.
Accompanying the report is a digital knowledge bank of various free resources that help share insights, good practice and recommended ways of working. These include case studies, think pieces and how-to guides as well as a short film that provides an overview of the wealth of work achieved over the last 12 months.
