BlueFish Regeneration specialises in community-led regeneration with a particular interest in coastal and rural areas. One of my projects for 2012 is to investigate the impact of cultural-led regeneration on local communities and economies, primarily (but not exclusively) in coastal towns. It will be grassroots focused, aimed at getting a better understanding of what does and doesn’t work on the ground, as opposed to what in theory should work. I’ll also be assessing the impact, if any, of government cut backs and the so-called Big Society in this area. If you have any thoughts, ideas, contacts, or case studies, please feel free to contribute to this blog as I need as much feedback as possible. I will share my findings later in the year and update this blog as I go along.
