Fuelling Creative Renewal is a report by the Culture & Commerce Taskforce that sets out a blueprint for a deeper relationship between the creative and business sectors to accelerate London's recovery from the pandemic.
Chaired by the Lord Mayor in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Culture Mile, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce assembles 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. Find about the members of the Culture & Commerce Taskforce.
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.
You can watch the Fuelling Creative Renewal report launch event and its roundtable below:
Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal outlines three key recommendations and 10 proposed projects where culture and commerce can work together for mutual benefit. Working together will accelerate London’s post-pandemic recovery and help secure its position as one of the best international cities in which to live, work, visit and invest.
The Taskforce seeks partners from across London who are able to contribute to the delivery and potentially take on a leadership role in progressing one or more of the ten projects.

In order to celebrate the value, resilience and vibrancy of the creative industries, as well as supporting those artists who work within them, the Culture & Commerce Taskforce commissioned eight new artworks which have been threaded throughout the Culture & Commerce: Fuelling Creative Renewal report. The artworks and artists have responded to some of the themes contained with the report.
