Why do so many new developments seem unimaginative and lack the qualities people enjoy in established places created in the past? And more importantly, what can we do about it?

Artists & Places provides practical advice for clients and developers, drawing together the lessons learnt from PROJECT, a two-year scheme created by CABE and Arts & Business, in which artists were brought into the development process. 

Essays from prominent urban commentators explore why and how artists can make a difference, and six case studies demonstrate how the process works. An evaluation of the approach shows how value can accrue from engaging artists as development consultants.
