Creative and Digital Mapping, Evaluation and Strategic Study for the Enterprising Barnsley Phase 2 Programme, Barnsley UK.

Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy has been commissioned by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council to review the Enterprising Barnsley programme of support for the creative and digital sector and understand its role and value in wider agendas of economic development.

Central to our work will be a focus on how the sector can play a value-adding role across other priority agendas - e.g. for a revitalised town centre, for a more diverse economic base and for a strong and confident cultural sector. This project will also allow us to bring to Barnsley our knowledge of best practice in 'creative place-making' for smaller towns and cities internationally.
