“Nottingham has all the foundations for becoming one of Europe’s leading cities for culture and creativity. I believe the city is perfectly placed to capitalise on the enquiry’s recommendations ensuring that culture is right at the heart of the city’s vision to transform the prospects for future generations and position the city as a beacon of international cultural excellence.”

Paul Russ, chief executive of Dance4 and Chairman of the SCP

“Nottingham is perfectly positioned to take on board these recommendations. We have a strong existing partnership that is already working on finding new ways for culture and creativity to transform the lives of local people and help strengthen our economy and our position in the world. With massive Government cuts to the council’s funding, it’s welcome that this report challenges the Government to help us find a radically different approach to delivering cultural provision. I know that in our partners and across the city we have a huge wealth of talent, passion and creativity to rise to the challenge and make Nottingham stand out.”

Councillor Jon Collins, leader of Nottingham City Council
