The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has recently published its “Design Strategy,” which shows the planning and building of every venue and project of London 2012 with good design at its core. The document details information such as design in the Olympic Park, design acquisition, evaluation and the ODA design team. London 2012 also would include Cultural Olympiad to accompany the Games. The goal is to create a four-year programme of cultural events and festivals throughout the UK in celebration of the Olympian spirit and the coming-together of nations in the global community. The arts sector is expected to participate and cooperate with the Olympics committee. Consultation with cultural sector representatives has already undergone its way to develop plans that would involve major organizations as well as local artists and performers.
