Welcome to the CIQ Agency

The Cultural Industries Quarter (CIQ) Agency has a long track record of driving regeneration, investment and development in the cultural industries in South Yorkshire.

It has contributed to the development of high profile successes in Sheffield, including the redevelopment of Butcher Works, JIGSAW and Developing Creativity. A host of smaller projects have also been supported, putting in place a growing infrastructure for the development of creative and digital industries in South Yorkshire and beyond.

Past initiatives have seen the CIQ Agency support the development of sustainable managed workspace for creative and digital industries through innovative partnerships with the voluntary and community sectors in the Creative Exchange: South Yorkshire(CE:SY) programme. CE:SY also promoted the growth of networking and learning opportunities in the creative and digital sector and ensured the development of a strong seed-bed of growing businesses who occupy the workspaces was created.

The CIQ Agency is now involved in delivering the Sheffield Community Network (SCN) programme alongside Sheffield City Council and other community partners (for more information visit www.sheffieldcommunity.net) as well as continuing to manage The Cube live/work scheme in Sheffield's Cultural Industries Quarter.

Over the next 12 months the CIQ Agency will also be working closely with Integreat Plus to deliver a range of CDI sector and place-making initiatives within Sheffield and across the region.
