This talk will assess current work on the evidence base for city cultural planning. It will focus on the Cultural Audit of London, for which Freeman was the lead author whilst working for the Mayor of London, England. The Audit's evidence was extensively used to formulate the Mayor of London's Cultural Strategy, and has excited worldwide interest. An update is set to appear in 2012, when London holds its next election and hosts the next Olympics.
