Warwick district's creative sector is vibrant, varied and fundamental to the economy of the region. It also supports the well-being and ambition of the district's residents.
Our impressive cultural assets and events programmes attract visitors to our towns, and a strong creative infrastructure entices highly skilled people to relocate here to work. The creative industries contributed £101.5 billion to the UK economy in 2017 - an increase of 53.1% since 2010 (£66.3 billion) and are expected to deliver close to £130 billion by 2025.
Our Arts Section team are here to support, develop, nurture and celebrate our creative community through grant awards, creative networking and promotion. We are also channelling the refreshed enthusiasm and momentum which has been building in the region's creative communities around opportunities presented by Coventry City of Culture in 2021 and Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
We are proud to announce that our 2022 Creative Partners are Motionhouse, Armonico Consort, Playbox Theatre and Warwick Words, these are reviewed annually. We look forward to working together and continuing to champion and promote the wealth of creative artists and organisations in the district.
