Culture Strategy for London

Culture for all Londoners is the Mayor's landmark strategy for culture. It outlines an ambitious vision, which aims to provide Londoners with access to culture on their doorsteps.

Culture and the creative industries contribute £47bn to London's economy every year and account for one in six jobs in the capital. Culture for all Londoners details how the Mayor will keep the city at the top of its creative game and ensure there are cultural opportunities in every corner of the capital.

The strategy has four priorities:

Love London - more people experiencing and creating culture on their doorstep

Culture and Good Growth - supporting, saving and sustaining cultural places

Creative Londoners - investing in a diverse creative workforce for the future

World City - maintaining a global powerhouse in a post-Brexit world

The Mayor has published a high-level implementation plan, which includes key policies, proposals and actions; and headline indicators of success.

You can also read the Culture Strategy Integrated Impact Assessment, which reviews the impacts of the strategy.


The Mayor consulted on his draft Culture Strategy from 23 March to 19 June 2018. Thank you to everyone who submitted their views. All the comments provided have been considered and have fed into the revised version of the strategy.

The Consultation Response Report provides an overview of the responses to the consultation.
