What is Cultural Streetscapes?
Cultural Streetscapes is Kantar Consulting’s vetted Network of global cultural correspondents. Streetscapers regularly observe, interpret, and report on what’s shaping their marketplace, enabling clients to learn from the leading edge of culture and switch on growth. The Cultural Streetscapes Network currently covers more than 50 countries and 150 cities globally.
What is the role of a Streetscaper?
A Streetscaper works as a freelance cultural correspondent, and is retained in our Network for custom research with Kantar Consulting. Their personal strengths are an inquisitive nature and an interest in the changing world around them. It is through this process that we help clients understand “why?” certain things are happening as much as explain “what?” is going on in the world.
