Sierra Planning and Management advised the City of London Investment and Economic Prosperity Standing Committee of Council, on a quantifiable estimation of the economic contribution of the arts, culture and creative sector in the City. This work formed part of the City’s Cultural Prosperity Planning exercise.

The methodology to investigate and quantify as well as qualify the scale of the arts and culture sector involved a review of the financial performance of major City-owned and private cultural facilities (including Orchestra London) as well as an analysis of cultural visitation, employment and municipal investment in arts and culture.
