Creative People and Places Collection

To coincide with the publication of Mark Robinson’s report, 10 Years of Learning from Creative People and Places, we’ve brought together a collection of reports, think pieces, toolkits, frameworks and case studies to mark the first 10 years.

Described by Robinson as ‘the most influential intervention by Arts Council England in the last two decades, and delivered by a remarkable set of people across all the places’, it emphasises the huge value of action research and peer learning.

You can explore the collection by ‘type of resource’ below.
