Including Culture in Development

Integrating cultural elements and programming into cities

PLP Labs and the Urban Land Institute created the UK’s Urban Art Forum’s (UAF) first publication, “Including Culture in Development: A Step-by-Step Guide”. Aimed at developers, the guide sets out to help improve the creation and integration of quality public art and cultural infrastructure in schemes. The guide provides clear and concise direction along with effective methodology to help developers implement cultural placemaking that generates long-term economic and social return on capital investment. Visit the ULI website to find out more.
