‘From dome to dome’: exploring cultural flagships and their contribution to achieving regeneration goals

ByDEBI HAYES

This chapter examines the role of cultural flagships in relation to regeneration and discusses to what extent they create a legacy with the urban landscape and its communities. It demonstrates the necessity of having a clear vision and policy from the outset and the importance of stable support from stakeholders who align with the vision. The development of a successful cultural flagship also highlights the need to manage media relationships since their coverage of the project is influential in shaping public perceptions of the project’s legacy.
