Map of England

As delivery partners for the Cultural Development Fund Peer Learning Network and the Research and Knowledge Base for Pioneering Places – the largest of the Great Place Schemes – Five10Twelve connects dozens of creative towns, communities and stakeholders across England. Working closely with DCMS, Arts Council England, Local Authorities and some of the country’s leading cultural organisations, Five10Twelve is at the forefront of exploring new strategies, innovations and ideas that are helping to form new, dispersed creative clusters, sharing knowledge and fostering collaboration across the wider creative and cultural sector.

Cultural Development Fund Peer Learning Network

The Cultural Development Fund (CDF) Peer Learning Network is the national collective that shares best practice and generates knowledge to capture and celebrate the success of the DCMS CDF investment.   By creating the space to nourish, innovate and re-energise for all of the trailblazing CDF projects, we influence, communicate, learn, celebrate, drive further investment and secure the legacy of the Cultural Development Fund.

Pioneering Places

Four projects in Canterbury, Dover, Folkestone and Ramsgate are being led by cultural organisations to encourage local people to get involved and shape the place where they live. Supported through Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, with Historic England and Artswork, the South East Bridge.
