Please find the Creative Peninsula Project Report, below, which brings together key insights from our programme of commissions and the Creative Peninsula Summit held in November 2022, as well as setting out our plans for the future. We have also included an Executive Summary with headline findings from the first year of activity.

In addition, if you're interested in the arts and heritage policy landscape in Devon and Cornwall, you may like to peruse the resources from colleagues, partners and other organisations in the region, below.

This page is a work in progress; if you think we're missing some key information, please do let us know!
