About Us

At City People, we know that great cities deliver powerful cultural outcomes via a whole range of platforms:

  • at the virtuosic hands of artists,
  • by the innovative approaches of entrepreneurs,
  • and by the cultural commitment of visionary developers, governments, cultural organisations – and impassioned individuals .

Having worked closely in the public sector, the private sector and in the arts and cultural sectors, we know also that there is a real need for people who can think on a broad strategic level, plan on a local informed level AND implement projects at a fine detail level.
