What can cities do to encourage cultural experiments and investment? And what kind of spaces do artists need for creativity to flourish? Studio Balsem guides city councils, political parties and other city stakeholders in shaping the arts & culture ecosystems and infrastructure of the creative city of the future.

We help shape the city

What are the public policy issues that arts practitioners are facing in the 21st century? How will the next generation of arts and culture leaders influence and shape policy beyond seeking appropriations of funds? How can the arts operate both as intrinsically valuable and as key creative tools to apply to tough community issues? The arts & culture industry are becoming a part of culture on the national and international level because they create both the symbolic and the economic capital. We advice governments, city councils, political parties and city stakeholders in shaping the arts & culture ecosystems and infrastructure for the creative city of the future.
