In Angers: a CCIs strategy to bolster emerging initiatives through partnerships

Culture for Cities and Regions organised a coaching visit to Angers from 21 to 23 March, which brought together experts from KEA European Affairs and Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy, and city peers from Lincoln. The visit focused on Angers’ needs in terms of governance, leadership and strategy. The coaching team helped Angers understand and combine local cultural and economic assets, and build bridges between the culture and economic development departments' strategies.


 Cultural heritage

Whilst cultural heritage has been defined as something inherited from the past, it is in many ways a contemporary and “living” cultural resource in Europe. 
 Cultural and creative industries

The economic contribution of the cultural and creative sector (CCS) in the European Union in general and to regional development in particular is widely acknowledged.
 Culture for social inclusion

Culture-led development strategies have direct and indirect impacts on social inclusion, social innovation and intercultural dialogue.
