Making sense of Olympic preparations and legacy
DPA advises Thames Gateway London Partnership on Olympics and culture. TGLP and DPA will continue to promote occasional meetings of the Thames Gateway Cultural Forum, a meeting space for East and South East London’s cultural practitioners about all things Olympic.

Helping boroughs to work together effectively:
DPA devised the Host Boroughs (Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower  Hamlets, Waltham Forest) Joint Cultural Framework – Transforming the Landscape. DPA has since been working with the Gateway Boroughs (Barking and Dagenham, Bexley, Havering, Lewisham, Redbridge) to develop a joint culture, education and regeneration approach to the Olympics.

Devising projects
DPA developed a number of legacy projects for London 2012 including the London Olympic Institute and the World Festival for Youth Culture.

Advising University of East London (where David Powell is a Visiting Professor in Cultural Policy) on developing ways of planning for legacy and evaluating the impact of the 2012 project on the cultural and wider communities.
