Bespoke place-based services for local and combined authorities, built environment professionals, creative and cultural leaders and place-based compacts, consortia and partnerships.

Our team brings experience of community consultation, mapping, feasibility studies, strategy development, programme and action planning, placemaking programme delivery, project evaluation and legacy frameworks.

We specialise in providing evidence-based insight drawn from data and research. As a lead partner in the Centre for Cultural Value, we work with leading universities, think tanks and consultancies to use data and evidence to plan and deliver transformational, place-based change.

We also work with industry leaders, government departments and arms-length bodies to explore and define strategies for sustainable sector development and implementation.

We are passionate about the power of people in place-based change; from inclusivity and social justice to sector development and skills-led growth. We fuel the plans for change-making through a user-centred approach which features in all our work strands; we listen, analyse, and reflect.

We work with you and your stakeholders to put their needs, ambitions, thoughts, and desires at the heart of the process.

Through our work across the creative and cultural sectors, The Audience Agency understands how culture, creativity, sport and leisure can bring wider social and economic benefits - and how it can act as a catalyst for individual and community development and sustainability.

From the national to the hyper-local, The Audience Agency understands place-based change. We bring the passion, expertise, and insight to support your needs and ambitions for better: in place and with people.
