The Sheffield City Region to accelerate its Cultural, Creative and Digital sectors and stop them being held back from reaching their full potential are supporting key sector advocacy and trade bodies.
The challenges that we collectively face across the City Region are not unique to this part of the UK, but there is a lack of connectivity, representation and cohesive activity to address them. For the City Region to take its place on the national and global stage such organisations can act as a focus and a voice.
