>>
>>         *For Communities *

>>         We *create* an *appetite* for culture by encouraging
>>         communities to explore and learn together what we want to
>>         experience in our localities. For example, how might a

>>
>>
>>         *For Cultural Organisations *
>>
>>         We *facilitate* a deeper and richer, more open consultation

>>         example, a city council might need to find out which new

>>
>>         *For All *

>>         *A Portfolio of Cultural Communities *
>>
>>         Over time we aim to add *thousands of cultural
>>         experiences* to the *CultureStake portfolio* in league with
>>         other cultural communities. Cultural organisations can add to
>>         this with new artist commissions or pick from the portfolio.
>>         This will allow artists and arts organisations to explore and
>>         test new ideas in new contexts and enable projects to be
>>         easily picked up in different locations with different
>>         communities. 
>>          
>>
>>         *Vote Weighting For People in Places*
>>
>>         Any *voting event* can apply vote weighting in a number of
>>         different scenarios. This means for example, that those
>>         closest to the issues can have their vote weighted to mean
>>         more overall. For instance, local votes might be given more
>>         weight in an international selection process for a new public
>>         artwork.
>>
